1st May 2011, Comments 0 comments

The Russian foreign ministry on Sunday said it had "serious doubts" the West was not targeting Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi and his family after Tripoli said Kadhafi's son was killed.

"The claims of the coalition members that strikes over Libya do not have the physical destruction of Moamer Kadhafi and members of his family as their goal cause serious doubts," the ministry said in a statement.

It called on the Western coalition to "cease fire immediately."

"Reports of casualties among civilians are being received in Moscow with increasing concern," the foreign ministry added.
