Libya: The forgotten victims of NATO strikes

In March 2011 several member states of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) launched a military campaign against Colonel Mu'ammar al-Gaddafi's forces. Although NATO appears to have made significant efforts to minimize the risk of causing civilian casualties, scores of Libyan civilians were killed and many more injured. Amnesty International is concerned that no information has been made available to the families of civilians killed and those injured in NATO strikes about any investigations which may have been carried out into the incidents which resulted in death and injury.
