CNN) — Satellite images of a Libyan city, provided to CNN by an intelligence source, appear to show evidence that pro-Gadhafi forces razed a mosque that recently served as a rebel command center.
The two images of an area of Zawiya, west of Tripoli, were taken February 20 and March 20, according to the source, who provided them on condition of anonymity.
In the first picture, a mosque can clearly be seen just south of Zawiya’s Martyrs’ Square, but in the later picture, the mosque is gone.
The images, the source said, were released as part of the international effort to build pressure on Gadhafi and to illustrate what coalition members say are crimes against his own people.
Pro-Gadhafi forces retook Zawiya this month after defeating rebel forces there.
