One administrative building of the residence compound of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was destroyed by a missile on Sunday, Libyan state TV reported.

It remains unknown whether Gaddafi was inside the compound at the time of bombing.

State TV footage showed that the building, which is quite near to the tent where the Libyan leader usually receive guests,had been severely damaged.

Earlier on Sunday, Bill Gortney, director of the U.S. military's Joint Staff, said Gaddafi is currently not on the target list of the military attacks.

At least 64 Libyans were reported to have been killed and 150 others wounded in the Western-led bombardment on Libya, according to the Libyan authorities.
