NAPLES - NATO is taking reports of civilian casualties in western airstrikes in Libya seriously, the commander of the alliance's military operations said on Thursday.

At least 40 civilians have been killed in air strikes by Western forces on Tripoli, the top Vatican official in the Libyan capital told Reuters on Thursday, quoting what he called reliable sources in close contact with residents.

"It is a news report and I appreciate the source of this report but it is worth noting that I take every one of those issues seriously," said Canadian Lieutenant General Charles Bouchard.

"We are very careful in the prosecution of any of the possible targets that we have. we have very strict rules of engagement provided to us and we are operating within the legal mandate of our United Nations mandate," he added.
