NATO air strikes kill at least 85 civilians

Libyan government
Libyan government officials claim
that NATO air strikes have killed
at least 85 civilians in a village
near the city of Zlitan, where
some funerals took place on
Tuesday. Libyan government
spokesman Moussa Ibrahim
accused NATO of carrying out the
air strikes to pave the way for
Libyan rebels to attack Tripoli.
"Eighty-five civilians, mothers,
their children, their daughters,
their boys, their husbands,
sisters and brothers, uncles,
aunts were massacred without
any mercy," he said, as cited by
Associated Press. According to
Libyan state television, Muammar
Gaddafi has announced three
days of mourning for the victims.
