Libya says Gadhafi's son killed in airstrike

The Libyan ruler Moammar Gadhafi's son and his three grandchildren died in a NATO air strike, and vowed to retaliate with death to invaders in the nation.

Gadhafi and his wife were in their son's house when it was targeted, but they are in good health. Another son Saifal Islam Gadhafi had previously touted reform, but has emerged as one of his father's most noticeable defenders in recent months.The strikes destroyed the house in Tripoli, leaving a massive crater where it used to be.

NATO official said in a report Sunday that some of Gadhafi's family members may have been killed. We regret all loss of life, especially the innocent civilians being harmed as a result of this ongoing conflict.

U.S. President Ronald Reagan said the strikes were an act of self-defense following the bombing of a West Berlin, Germany, club that killed two American servicemen and injured several others.
