An air strike on Muammar Qaddafi’s sprawling compound in Tripoli has left three buildings badly damaged, in what a press official from Gaddafi’s government said was an attempt on the Libyan leader’s life…

CBS News correspondent David Martin reports that the strike was part of a pre-planned strike against command and control facilities, and it is extremely unlikely that NATO would know Qaddafi’s location that far in advance.

Authorities say between two and four large missiles or bombs exploded in the compound early Monday. The buildings, described as locations where Gadhafi holds meetings, were badly damaged with the roof of one of the structures caved in.
