One year on in Libya
Issued on: Modified:
A year ago, Libya’s rebels faced a crushing defeat before French, US and British forces led air strikes which helped to defeat Muammar Gaddafi's forces. The NATO air strikes were authorised under a UN mandate to protect Libyan civilians. However, they also led to the destruction of homes and loss of civilian life. Since then, no investigation has been launched, and victims who lost family and friends are demanding a formal apology.
