Libyan authorities have accused NATO of a "massacre" of 85 civilians in the village of Majer, near the town of Zlitan on the rebel front line east of Tripoli

Thirty three children, 20 men and 32 women were killed in NATO air strikes launched in support of the rebels, regime spokesman Mussa Ibrahim said on Tuesday.

Three bombs struck an area of the village at around 11pm local time, he said, and when others rushed to help, three more bombs hit. 

Al Jazeera's Andrew Simmons, reporting from near Zlitan, could not confirm the report.
