UN condemns attacks on civilian areas of Libya

UN Special Envoy for Libya Ghassan Salame on Wednesday called for an end to attacks on civilian areas in Libya, after heavy artillery pounded Tripoli city Tuesday night, killing 14 people and wounding 40.

Salame condemned attacks on civilian areas and called them war crimes. He called on all parties to respect international humanitarian laws and human rights and said every measure must be taken to protect civilians and infrastructure.

Germany asked the UN Security Council to hold a meeting on Libya after the failure to achieve a ceasefire in Tripoli. The Council is scheduled to meet on Thursday to discuss its next moves.
