Nato strike kills Gaddafi’s youngest son

Saif al-Arab Gaddafi, the youngest son of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, and three of his grandchildren have been killed in a NATO air strike, a Libyan government spokesman said.

Gaddafi and his wife were in the Tripoli house of his 29-year-old son, Saif al-Arab Gaddafi, when it was hit by at least one missile fired by a NATO warplane late on Saturday, according to Libyan government spokesman Moussa Ibrahim.

“This was a direct operation to assassinate the leader of this country. This is not permitted by international law. It is not permitted by any moral code or principle.

“What we have now is the law of the jungle,” Ibrahim told a news conference.

“We think now it is clear to everyone that what is happening in Libya has nothing to do with the protection of civilians.” The Battle For Libya – Aljazeera
