NATO has hit back at a report urging the alliance to investigate fully the deaths of civilians in air strikes in Libya last year.

Human Rights Watch said at least 72 civilians had been killed in the strikes and the group needed to bear responsibility where appropriate.

But NATO's spokeswoman said the campaign was conducted "with unprecedented care and precision".

Aircraft from the US, the UK and France conducted most of the 9,658 strikes last year, targeting forces loyal to Libyan leader Col Muammar Gaddafi.
