NATO says airstrike may have killed civilians

BRUSSELS — NATO says one of its airstrikes in the Libyan capital of Tripoli went astray and may have killed civilians.

The military alliance said the errant strike early Sunday may have been due to “a weapons system failure.”

Libyan officials say nine civilians were killed, including two children. Officials took reporters to the building that was hit, where children’s toys, teacups and dust-covered mattresses could be seen amid the rubble.
