NATO Boosts Bombing Amid Rebel Complaints
Posted on Apr 6, 2011
After a lull in the bombing—and some very public criticism by the rebels fighting Moammar Gadhafi—NATO is once again ramping up its airstrikes on Libya, to the tune of 137 flights Monday, 186 on Tuesday and 198 planned for Wednesday.
The New York Times:
TRIPOLI, Libya — Stung by criticism from rebel leaders, NATO officials said Wednesday that the pace of attacks on the forces of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi was increasing, after a slight slowdown as the coalition handed off responsibility earlier in the week.
[...] A spokeswoman for NATO, Carmen Romero, said the alliance had flown 137 sorties on Monday and 186 on Tuesday and that it planned to fly 198 on Wednesday, The Associated Press reported.
