NATO is not known whether alive or dead Gaddafi

Brussels. .- NATO not known whether the Libyan leader, Muammar Gaddafi, is alive or dead, after he has not appeared in public in recent days and that allied aircraft have repeatedly bombed the complex in which it resides. "We have no evidence (whether alive or dead), do not know what Gaddafi is doing now," he said in a press conference in Naples (Italy), Brigadier General Claudio Gabellini ally in response to questions from reporters .

"And if I tell the truth," he added, "we're not really interested. Our mandate is to protect civilians threatened by the attacks, and do not look at individuals." Unlike what he did during weeks of the conflict in his country, Qaddafi has not appeared in public in recent days. On 30 April, a NATO bombing of the palace of Libyan leader killed one of his sons and three grandchildren, according to various sources.

Gabellini confirmed that NATO planes bombed again last night command and control centers of the regime in Tripoli, but did not say whether the attacks amounted Gadhafi's residence, as point out some information from Libya. Brigadier-General explained that, having stabilized the situation in the east, much of NATO's efforts are now focusing on destroying the centers from which the system organizes its "systematic attacks" against the population.

Gabellini insisted that all the objectives of NATO bombs are military and that each attack is "necessary, legal and moral" and executed in a manner that minimizes the potential for collateral damage. To this end, the Alliance today showed reporters videos that you could see their planes destroyed the Libyan regime targets without reaching nearby buildings.

According to NATO, the pictures were taken last Sunday in the area Misrata City, stronghold of the rebels who challenge the regime of Gaddafi, and show the "precision" bombs.
