The staff of a hospital in Libya is challenging the Libyan government's
claims that a baby was wounded in a NATO air strike on Tripoli.
Government officials took foreign journalists to see the child in the
hospital, where a worker handed a note to journalists saying the child
had been hurt in a car accident.
A man at the girl's bedside claiming to be a neighbor of the child and
her family denounced NATO at the prompting of a Libyan government
official who was also present. The same man later acknowledged that he
was employed by the Gaddafi government's media operations team.
Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's officials say more than 700 civilians
have been killed and more than 4,000 wounded in NATO air strikes.
