NATO bombs Libyan town near Tunisian border

TUNIS, May 15 (Xinhua) — NATO planes on Sunday morning bombed barracks and radar installations in the Libyan town of Boukamache, some 17 km from the Tunisian border, the official TAP press agency reported.

The bombings which could be heard at the Ras El Jedir border crossing point, provoked panic among a number of Tunisians on their way back to Tunisia, TAP said, adding following the bombings, a large number of Libyan refugees fled the region and crossed into Tunisia.

On Saturday night, a Tunisian army patrol managed to thwart an infiltration attempt into Tunisian territory by forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, TAP reported.

More than 200 people tried to enter the Tunisian border, near Tataouine, in an attempt to take rebel forces by surprise. They were repelled back into Libya. No clashes were recorded. In the meantime, the Tunisian army deployed more military vehicles to protect the border area, TAP said.

Pro-Gaddafi forces use human shields

Pro-Gaddafi forces are using civilians as human shields to curb NATO air strikes on Gaddafi’s compound in Tripoli, Libyan state TV reported on Sunday.

It showed footage of hundreds of Tripoli citizens acting as human shields late this week.

In another development, Paris pledged to render political and financial support to Libyan rebels, something that was announced during Saturday’s closed-door talks between French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Libya’s opposition leader Mahmoud Gibril.

NATO denies attacking DPRK embassy in Tripoli

BRUSSELS, May 12 (Xinhua) — NATO on Thursday dismissed media reports that a NATO air strike damaged the embassy of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) in Tripoli.

“It has been alleged that NATO attacked the embassy; this is simply not true. In fact, the embassy is located some 500 meters from the target we struck,” the alliance said in a statement.

According to the statement, NATO attacked a command and control bunker complex in downtown Tripoli last night.

“While we are aware of media reports that there was damage to the North Korean embassy, we have no knowledge of possible collateral damage,” it said.

“Our strikes are precise and while the possibility of collateral damage will always exist, we go to great lengths to reduce such possibilities,” it concluded.
