Human Rights Watch inquiry has found that 72 civilians were killed in NATO airstrikes over Libya last year. The inquiry examined claims of civilian deaths during 8 separate NATO strikes and found that in some cases it failed to acknowledge the deaths. It says the families of victims should now be compensated.
NATO has hit back at a report highlighting the numbers of civilians killed in last year's air campaign over Libya, saying it carried out attacks with unprecedented care and precision. A spokeswoman for NATO says the campaign exceeded standards required by International Law.
The HUB's Karin Giannone spoke to David Mepham, the UK director of Human Rights Watch, who explained the report in more detail.
