NATO planes were involved in an airstrike in Western Libya near the border town of Wazen, the Radio Mosaique reported on Monday.

The bombings, taking place on Sunday might, could be heard in the Tunisian town of Dhiba, a few kilometers away, prompted the inhabitants to flee the town to neighboring Remada town.

The radio report said that the Libyan side of the Wazen border post was currently deserted after the rebels fled to the mountain area surrounding the town.

Calm prevailed in the area Monday morning, and no fight was reported. On Sunday afternoon, forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi fired mortar shells damaging several houses in Dhiba, causing panic among the local population and the Libyan refugees.
