NATO confirmed Monday that it carried out an airstrike against a high-level command and control site associated with Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's regime - an airstrike the Libyan government alleges killed 15 people, among them three children.
NATO said the airstrike near Zawiya followed information-gathering through reconnaissance. The target was "directly involved in coordinated and systematic attacks" against the Libyan people, a NATO statement said.
Earlier, NATO had denied the government's accusations, saying it was not operating in the area at the time. Later, it said it was investigating the allegations.FULL STORY
