NATO's bombing of civilians in Libya looks as if it is deliberate.
On 19 June 2011, a Libyan government spokesman condemned NATO air raids on a civilian neighborhood.
He said that NATO was "deliberately targeting civilians."
The residential area had no military facilities or weapons installed nearby.
9 civilians were killed in the US-NATO raid.
A Xinhua reporter saw dozens of homes damaged or destroyed.
A BBC reporter saw bodies pulled from the wreckage.
NATO warplanes circled overhead for more than one hour after the raids, causing panic to local residents.
NATO has admitted that they caused civilian casualties.

In the UK, during World war II, Dr. Kurt Lewin was the director of the Strategic Bombing Survey.
This was a plan for the Royal Air Force to concentrate on bombing German civilians, not munition plants.
"The munition plants belonged to the international bankers who had no wish to see their assets destroyed."
The idea behind saturation bombing of civilian worker housing was to break the morale of the civilians.
Lewin and his team of actuaries worked out that if 65% of German worker housing was destroyed by nightly RAF bombing, the morale of the civilian population would collapse.
"The actual document was prepared by the Prudential Assurance Company."
The RAF, under the command of 'Bomber Harris', carried out Lewin's plans, culminating in the terror firestorm bombing of Dresden, in which over 125,000, mainly old men, women and children, were killed.
