A resident of the Libyan capital says two strong explosions have been heard on the outskirts of the city.
The Tripoli resident said the blasts apparently struck the area near the airport Wednesday. He asked that his name not be used for fear of reprisals by the government.
The explosions could be NATO airstrikes on targets held by Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi.
Libyan rebels have been pleading for more NATO airstrikes as top Western and Arab envoys gather in Qatar's capital to discuss ways to end the Libyan crisis.
