Russia criticizes NATO attack in Libya

Russia criticizes NATO attack in Libya

A Russian lawmaker who often expresses the Kremlin's views on foreign affairs has condemned the NATO air strike on Tripoli that Libyan officials said killed a son and three grandchildren of Moammar Gadhafi.
"More and more facts indicate that the aim of the anti-Libyan coalition is the physical destruction of Gadhafi," Konstantin Kosachyov said Sunday.
The NATO missile strike late Saturday hit a Gadhafi family compound in Tripoli.
In Brussels, NATO spokeswoman Carmen Romero said the report of deaths remains unconfirmed.
"We targeted a military command and control building with a precision strike," she said. "It was not targeted against any individual. It was a military target, clearly linked to the Gadhafi's regime's systematic attacks on the civilian population."
