NATO denies hitting Libya's state broadcaster

NATO on Monday denied reports that it had bombed Libya's state broadcaster, indicating that its air raids had targeted a "key" intelligence building of Moamer Gaddafi's regime, dpa reported.

"Early on June 6, 2011 NATO aircraft struck a command and control target in Tripoli, specifically a key Gaddafi regime intelligence headquarters building," the alliance said in a statement.

A press officer at NATO's military headquarters in Naples told the German Press Agency dpa that the statement was providing "factual information," dispelling reports coming out of Libya.

"As long as Gaddafi continues to threaten civilians, NATO will maintain the pressure upon his regime and will continue to degrade his ability to attack the population of Libya," Lieutenant-General Charles Bouchard, the commander of NATO's Libya operation, said.
