NATO must investigate civilian deaths in Libya, says Amnesty | The Guardian

NATO has failed to properly investigate or provide compensation for civilian deaths caused by its air strikes during the seven-month operation in Libya that helped bring about the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi, Amnesty International has said.

Echoing similar criticisms aired this month by Russia, Amnesty said scores of Libyans who were not involved in the conflict had been killed or injured in Nato bombings but there had been no proper investigations into their deaths.

“NATO officials repeatedly stressed their commitment to protecting civilians,” said Donatella Rovera, a senior crisis adviser at Amnesty.
