Text size Aa Aa

Former Libyan Energy Minister Omar Fathi Bin Shatwan has said Colonel Gadaffi’s forces have killed hundreds of people in their attacks on Misrata.

Bin Shatwan said Gaddafi was deliberately targetting civilian areas.

“The forces of Gadaffi started to face people not only with guns but with heavy artillery and with tanks, especially in Misrata and he killed hundreds of people,” he told euronews.

“I was in Misrata for 40 days. Misrata was sieged completely with all heavy artillery and army. They surrounded and bombarded many vital places like food stores, water resources and electricity (supplies). Then they started to bombard people randomly everywhere. There’s no way that nobody can trust this regime again.”
