NATO forces have targeted the Libyan capital Tripoli in overnight air strikes.

Libyan state television Al-Jamahiriya said a vocational school was among the targets hit.

The station said the attacks caused "human and material losses" but gave no specific details.

It is the third night in a row that NATO has targeted Tripoli.

The strike comes after U.S. President Barack Obama warned Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi that there would be "no let-up" in pressure on him to go.

The G8 will discuss Libya at a meeting starting today in France.
