Nato suggests ‘weapons systems failure’ in Tripoli raid

Nato has admitted “a weapons systems failure” may have led to civilian casualties in Sunday morning’s air strike in the Libyan capital, Tripoli.

The alliance said the intended target was a missile site, but “it appears that one weapon” did not hit it.

The Libyan government earlier said Nato had bombed a residential area, killing nine civilians, including two babies.
