“NATO units left 61 migrants to die of hunger and thirst”

INTERNATIONAL PAPERS, Mon., 9/5/2011: The Guardian headlines this morning on NATO units that “left 61 migrants die of hunger and thirst” in the Mediterranean Sea in late March. Controversially, the article claims that it was ‘likely’ that the French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle was the NATO vessel that failed to come to their rescue. The French Navy denies the charges.
