Everyone had gathered to celebrate the third birthday of little Al-Khweldy.
Her father, Khaled Al-Hamedi, is president of one of the most important Arab humanitarian associations.
The grand-parents, the brothers and sisters and cousins were crowding inside the family house located in Sorman.
About thirty children were running around among the animals.
Among the guests, a spy had sneaked in.
He was pretending to twitter his friends.
In reality, he had just marked the targets and was relaying them, through the social network, to NATO Headquarters.
During the night of 19 to 20 June 2011, NATO missiles struck.
The spy had placed markers in the children’s bedrooms.
Twelve mutilated bodies lay under the rubble.
On 1st July, 1.7 million people demonstrated in Tripoli to defend their country.
NATO says it destroyed a surface-to-air missile site in northern Tripoli overnight
Libyan government spokesman Moussa Ibrahim said: "Nato is planting the seed of hatred in the hearts of Libyan people for years to come. They won't allow foreign armies to decide their future."
