The Libyan government on Friday denied rebel reports that Moammar Gadhafi's youngest son was killed in a NATO airstrike on a front-line town in western Libya.
NATO denied a Libyan government charge Thursday that the alliance is intentionally using its airstrikes to assist rebel advances, saying it is sticking to its mandate to protect civilians.
Forces loyal to Col. Moammar Gadhafi shelled a besieged western city Thursday, killing at least nine people, witnesses said, while the United States told a NATO meeting that the alliance must intensify its political, diplomatic and economic mission to isolate the Libyan leader and "bring about his departure."
"He is OK and alive, and they (reports of death) are just lies," Kaim told The Associated Press.
But in Tripoli, Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Kaim said Khamis is alive and spoke to Libyan government officials Friday to confirm his well-being.
