Libyan TV says NATO targets telecoms, broadcasters

NATO warplanes have launched air strikes on telecommunication and broadcasting infrastructure in several Libyan cities, state television reported on Wednesday.

The Al-Libiya channel did not say in its written news flash when the attacks took place or give further details.

"Telecommunication infrastructure, and radio and television broadcasting stations in several Libyan cities were subject to bombardment by warplanes of the crusader colonial aggression," it said.

Western officials say NATO is targeting only military targets consistent with the alliance's U.N.-mandated campaign to impose a no-fly zone and protect Libyan civilians from Muammar Gaddafi's forces.
