Amnesty: [NATO 'covers up' Libyan death shame] NATO has failed to investigate civilian deaths incurred during military campaignLibya the Forgotten Victims of NATO Strikes
The report from Amnesty International is called Libya: The forgotten victims of NATO Strikes
She stressed that if NATO is indeed dedicated to the protection of civilians, then it cannot simply “brush aside the deaths of scores of civilians with some vague statement of regret.”
The Libyan Health Minister of the National Transitional Council estimated that about 30,000 were killed during the conflict.Amnesty International appealed to NATO on March 5, urging them to undertake a thorough investigation into the civilian deaths documented by the NGO. Furthermore, they asked for the findings of any subsequent investigation to be publicly disclosed and compensation [?] to be given to the victims’ families.
“While NATO did everything possible to minimize the risk to civilians, in a complex military operation that risk cannot be reduced to zero. NATO deeply regrets any harm that may have been caused by those air strikes.”
Amnesty International published its findings in a report entitled “Libya: The forgotten victims of NATO Strikes” on Monday.
