Libyan authorities on Tuesday accused NATO of a “massacre” of 85 villagers in air strikes in support of rebels, whose political leadership was in crisis with the sacking of its top officials.

The village of Majer, 10 kilometres (six miles) south of Zliten in western Libya, was attacked late on Monday to try to help rebel fighters enter the government-held city from the south, government spokesman Mussa Ibrahim said.

“After the first three bombs dropped at around 11:00 pm (2100 GMT) on Monday, many residents of the area ran to the bombed houses to try to save their loved ones. Three more bombs struck,” he told reporters on an organised visit.

Thirty-three children, 32 women and 20 men from 12 families were killed in the massacre, Mussa said.

    C’est honteux, que pour ses intérêts personnels, les pays qui se sont donnés le droit de gouverner le monde organisent de tel massacres de population civile. C’est un génocide qui est perpétré en Libye par la France et ses alliés. Quelle démocratie veut-on instaurer en Libye? Qui protège-t-on? Les civiles ou la poignée de rebelle qui veut à tout prix le pouvoir? Pourquoi s’acharner tant contre un peuple?
    On dépense des centaines de millions de dollards pour tuer les libyens et pendant ce temps, la corne de l’Afrique a besoin de deux petits milliards de dollards pour survivre.
    Où sont vos priorités humanitaires?
