ZLITAN, LIBYA // Libyan officials said yesterday that dozens of civilians had been killed in a Nato strike on a cluster of farmhouses east of Tripoli, but the alliance said it hit a legitimate military target.
A strike causing large numbers of civilian casualties could undermine support in some Nato nations for a campaign to topple the Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi.
A spokesman for Col Qaddafi's government, who took foreign reporters to the scene of the strike, said 85 people had been killed.

What were civilians doing in this dangerous area worthy of bombs? They should not have had any relation with military grade targets. Respect fire and you may live, live in fire and you may die...don't burn.
