LONDON - NATO acknowledged responsibility for an air strike that killed civilians in Tripoli on Sunday.

"...a military missile site was the intended target of air strikes in Tripoli last night," a NATO statement said.

"However, it appears that one weapon did not strike the intended target and that there may have been a weapons system failure which may have caused a number of civilian casualties."
