At least three civilians were killed Thursday including two local journalists during a NATO raid early in the day that targeted the capital Tripoli, said spokesman of the General People's Committee Moussa Ibrahim.

"The journalists were taking photos of the place when missiles landed near them leading to their death," Ibrahim said in statements carried by the Libyan news agency.

Explosions were also heard near Bab Al-Aziziyah area, the residence of Libyan Leader Muammar Gaddafi, added Ibrahim.

On Wednesday, Libya's state TV broadcast a video showing Gaddafi in a meeting with tribal leaders refuting rumors about Gaddafi's death during NATO's raids.
