NATO urged to investigate civilian deaths in Libya | BBC News

A leading human rights organisation has urged NATO to investigate fully the deaths of civilians in air strikes in Libya last year.

Human Rights Watch believes NATO air strikes killed at least 72 civilians and says the organisation needs to bear responsibility where appropriate.

“We’re calling for prompt, credible and thorough investigations,” HRW’s Fred Abrahams told BBC News.

NATO insists it took unprecedented care to minimise civilian casualties.
