Media group slams NATO bombing of Libyan TV


BRUSSELS (AP) — An international journalists’ group sharply criticized NATO air strikes against Libyan television, which killed three people and injured 15, saying Wednesday they violated international law and U.N. resolutions.

The International Federation of Journalists said the bombing Saturday was in contravention of a Security Council resolution passed in December 2006 that explicitly condemned such attacks against journalists and media.

“We utterly condemn this action, which targeted journalists and threatened their lives in violation of international law,” Brussels-based IFJ secretary-general Beth Costa said.

Libyan officials said the airstrikes early Saturday killed three journalists and injured 15 other people.
