Gaddafi still attacking civilians - US admiral
Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi is still attacking civilians in direct violation of a UN resolution, a US admiral said today.
"It's my judgement that, despite our success, that Gaddafi and his forces are not yet complying to the UN resolution due to the continued aggressive actions his forces have taken against the civilian population of Libya," Admiral Samuel Locklear, commander aboard the USS Mount Whitney, told reporters.
He said pro-Gaddafiforces were still withdrawing from the towns of Ajdabiyah, Misratah and Zawiyah.
Turning to the crew of a F-15 jet which crashed in Libya late yesterdat due to a technical fault, Locklear said: "Both crew members ejected and they're safe."
"One crew member was recovered by coalition forces. The other crew member was recovered by Libyan people. He was been treated with dignity and respect," he added.
