Democracy now: Die Nato hat zum ersten Mal zugegeben, dass Zivilisten durch ihr siebenmonatiges Bombardement von Libyen verwundet und getötet wurden, aber erst nachdem die New York Times Beweise veröffentlicht hat. Krankenwagen hat die Nato angegriffen und Helfer, die Verwundete versorgen wollten!
NATO has admitted for the first time Libyan civilians were killed and injured during its seven-month bombing campaign that led to the ouster and death of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. The acknowledgment came after a New York Times investigation revealed at least 40 civilians, and perhaps more than 70, were killed by NATO air strikes, including at least 29 women or children. Others were killed when NATO warplanes bombed ambulance crews and civilians who were attempting to aid the wounded injured in earlier strikes. We speak to New York Times senior reporter Eric Schmitt, who co-wrote the investigation with C.J. Chivers. „We only saw a small sampling of the strike sites that may have been affected, so the death toll is probably much larger,“ Chivers says. [includes rush transcript]
