Gaddafi's family to file Nato war crimes complaint

PARIS (AFP) - Muammar Gaddafi's family plans to file a war crimes complaint against Nato with the International Criminal Court (ICC) for the alliance's alleged role in his death, the family's lawyer said on Wednesday. The 69-year-old ex-strongman was captured and killed on Thursday near the city of Sirte in circumstances that are still unclear, but it has been confirmed Nato aircraft fired on pro-Gaddafi vehicles driving in a convoy from the city. Mr Marcel Ceccaldi, a French lawyer who previously worked for Gaddafi's regime and now represents his family, told AFP that a complaint would be filed with the Hague-based ICC because Nato's attack on the convoy led directly to his death. 'The wilful killing (of someone protected by the Geneva Convention) is defined as a war crime by Article 8 of the ICC's Rome Statute,' he said.
