TRIPOLI - A Libyan health official said on Sunday the number of people killed as a result of Western air strikes overnight had risen to 64 from 48, a figure given by the government.

"People died from their wounds so the death toll has risen," said the official, who did not want to be identified. The figure could not be independently verified.
