Gaddafi daughter sues over attacks

LAWYERS for Muammar Gaddafi’s daughter have filed lawsuits in Paris and Brussels over the alleged assassination in late April of four of the Libyan leader’s relatives in NATO bombing raids over Tripoli.

Lawyers for Aisha al-Gaddafi said the complaints do not name a specific defendant, though an official at the state prosecutor’s office in Brussels said that the text appears to target the Atlantic military alliance – which is based in the Belgian capital.

State prosecutors said overnight that officials are assessing whether the case can be admitted.

NATO aircraft have been leading bombing raids over Libya under a UN Security Council resolution aimed at protecting civilians from Mr Gaddafi’s forces.
