The streets of Tripoli were ablaze overnight in the latest round of NATO attacks on the Libyan capital. A Gaddafi spokesperson said the main targets were the police headquarters and a ministry building. Most of the damage, he said, was psychological. (SOUNDBITE)(English) GOVERNMENT SPOKESMAN MUSSA IBRAHIM SAYING: "As you saw also the targets were located in a very civilian residential area, so people have been terrorised, families terrorised, children terrorised, some of course minor damage to houses around." In Benghazi-- more flames-- these from an effigy of Gaddafi burned by the rebels. Earlier, cheers of celebration after Monday's announcement that the International Criminal Court would seek a warrant for Gaddafi's arrest. Whether the ICC issues the warrant remains to be seen, although prosecutors say they have more than enough evidence to make their case. Julie Noce, Reuters
