But Adel Mohamed Saleh, who called himself a political activist in Tripoli, said the aerial bombing had initially targeted a funeral procession.
"What we are witnessing today is unimaginable. Warplanes and helicopters are indiscriminately bombing one area after another. There are many, many dead," Saleh told al Jazeera television in a live broadcast.
"Our people are dying. It is the policy of scorched earth." he said. "Every 20 minutes they are bombing."
Asked if the attacks were still happening he said: "It is continuing, it is continuing. Anyone who moves, even if they are in their car they will hit you."
The BBC also quoted a witness in Tripoli as saying he could see people being shot by aircraft
The pilots of two Libyan military jets that landed in Malta on Monday are "senior colonels" who were ordered to bomb protesters, Al Jazeera satellite network reports.

The West will get accused of invasion. It's a tough one.
Maybe NATO or UN forces could step in?
Gaddafi is a lunatic. Hopefully after all is said and done he will be removed from power.
From Tripoli, one eyewitness told the BBC that people there are expecting a major event tonight - "a final battle" were the words used.

So there's a bunch of dead bodies? Btw, I'm pretty sure that is so graphic that it might be considered against T&C. And also didn't see any planes there or any cause for those injuries either.

I understand your skepticism, but be aware that if you are wrong and this is all very real and happening now, your callous words will return to haunt you.
Please show at least minimal respect until you knowt what's going on.

This is none of NATO's concern.. IF anything, it would be a UN matter but right now, its an internal Libyan matter.
Let them sort it out.
