Libyan officials says NATO hits civilian house

TRIPOLI - Libyan officials said on Sunday a NATO strike had hit a civilian house in the capital and killed several residents, an allegation which, if confirmed, could sow fresh doubts inside the alliance about its mission in Libya.
Reporters were taken to a residential area and saw a body pulled out of the rubble of a destroyed building.
Later, in a hospital, they were shown the bodies of a child and two others who, officials said, were among a total of seven people killed in the strike.
"There was intentional and deliberate targeting of the civilian houses," deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Kaim told reporters at the site. "This is another sign of the brutality of the West."
