Russia asks NATO to probe civilian deaths in Libya
United Nations: Russia is urging NATO to investigate civilian deaths in Libya from its bombing campaign, saying the alliance`s claim of zero casualties is untrue.
Russia`s UN Ambassador Vitaly Churkin said he has been asking NATO to give "a definitive report" to the UN Security Council summing up its activities in Libya but "unfortunately" the alliance only provided "piecemeal, rather perfunctory reports."
Churkin told reporters Monday he will raise the issue of civilian casualties when the Security Council discusses Libya on Thursday.
NATO`s 7-month air campaign against Libya set the country on the path to a democratic transition and was hailed by the alliance. But Russia and other critics argued that NATO misused the U.N. resolution authorizing the protection of civilians.
