4:07 am
to the deaths of more than eight hundred others and even government says were killed by their bombs the nine people killed in sunday's bombing of a residential building in tripoli remain the only civilian casualties by the lines which claimed a mistake technical failure and former pentagon official says the only thing clear about the nato campaign is the mountain casualty toll and it's inflicting on the even people who may try to achieve a certain level of humanitarian effort and initially but the protracted bombing is now increasingly hitting civilian targets and it's creating a very negative reaction i think it does raise the question of what is nato's role continued role going to be there as the content of those actions increases are the voices become more and more to the voices of the libyan people. and it seems that the more anger they feel about nato the more they support.
