Libya says civilians killed by Western airstrikes

TRIPOLI - Civilians, including women, were among those killed in the latest Western air strikes in the Libyan capital Tripoli, officials and hospital workers said.
Libya said late on Thursday the civilian death toll from five days of coalition air strikes had reached almost 100 and accused Western governments of fighting on the side of the rebels.
Western military officials deny any civilians have been killed in its campaign to enforce a no-fly zone over Libya to protect civilians from government forces.
Reuters and other journalists were taken to Tripoli Central Hospital where they were shown 15 bodies on Thursday night.
