TRIPOLI - Libya's government denied on Sunday there were command and control facilities in a Tripoli neighborhood where NATO air strikes killed a son of Muammar Gaddafi and three of his grandchildren.

Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Kaim said the attack was the fourth attempt to assassinate Gaddafi, who was in the building at the time.

Kaim also denied allegations that appeared in some media that the government had fabricated the deaths and said church leaders in Libya had been allowed to see the bodies in the hospital.
