No evidence of civilian casualties in Libya strikes: UK

LONDON (Reuters) - There is no confirmed evidence the international military coalition’s airstrikes in Libya have caused civilian casualties, British Foreign Secretary William Hague said on Friday.

“This operation has been doing what it was meant to do, protect the civilian population of Libya, and there is no confirmed evidence of any casualties at all, civilian casualties, caused by the coalition strikes on the Gaddafi regime,” Hague told Sky Television.
