A huge explosion was heard in the rebel-held Libyan oil town of Ras Lanuf on Sunday, followed by the sound of anti-aircraft guns opening fire, an AFP reporter said.

The cause of the explosion was not clear, but witnesses said regime forces earlier carried out two air strikes, one near a checkpoint on the eastern extremity of Ras Lanuf and the other at a rebel-occupied army barracks.
