11 July 2011

TRIPOLI, July 10 (Xinhua) — Libyan Prime Minister al-Baghdadi Ali al-Mahmoudi has urged UN intervention to stop NATO military attacks against the north African country, local media reported.

Al-Mahmoudi made this appeal when meeting Saturday with Abdel Elah al-Khatib, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s special envoy for Libya.

NATO’s intensive airstrikes have caused a great number of civilian casualties, in violation of the UN Security Council Resolutions 1970 and 1973 on Libya, the official JANA news agency quoted al-Mahmoudi as saying.

According to the Libyan government, three months of NATO airstrikes had killed more than 800 people and injured more than 4,700 in the country.
