The Center for Research on Globalization says the bombs and missiles that the US-led military alliance has dropped on several Libyan cities contain depleted uranium (DU).
Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya, a research associate at the CRG center, told Press TV that there are several international missions in Libya to gather evidence on NATO war crimes, including the use of DU.
His remarks come weeks after the Stop the War Coalition said in its late March report that dozens of bombs and cruise missiles were launched by the US, British, and French forces -- all with DU warheads -- in the first 24 hours of the war on Libya.
Clinton urges Dems to support Libya war
The US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has urged Democrats in Congress to support the continuation of American military involvement in the war on Libya.
She has met with Democrats behind closed doors to explain the purpose of the mission, a senior State Department official told ABC News.
US President Barack Obama has been under fire from both sides of the aisle for failing to seek congressional authorization before ordering airstrikes on Libya.
The administration says it did not need authorization, because the US military has not deployed any ground troops in Libya.
However, Republican House Speaker John Boehner and others congress people have challenged Obama's reasoning.
"The Obama Administration's claim that targeted bombings, missile strikes, and other military actions in Libya do not constitute hostilities under the War Powers Resolution is not credible," Boehner said.
US House rejects Libya war mandate
The House of Representatives in a scathing rebuke to President Barack Obama has rejected a resolution authorizing US military action in Libya for one year.
War-fatigued American lawmakers defeated the measure on Friday with 295 votes against and only 123 votes in its favor, AFP reported.
The congressional action was a swipe at Obama over growing discontent among US lawmakers after a decade of wars in Afghanistan and Iraq that has cost more than a trillion dollars and has helped fuel a USD 1.4 trillion budget deficit.
"We don't have enough wars going on? The war in Iraq, the war in Afghanistan, we need one more war?" Democratic Representative Dennis Kucinich said during Friday's vote.
Italy breaks ranks over NATO's Libya mission
Italy called for a suspension of hostilities in Libya on Wednesday in the latest sign of dissent within NATO as the civilian death toll mounts and Moamer Kadhafi shows no signs of quitting power.
"We have seen the effects of the crisis and therefore also of NATO action not only in eastern and southwestern regions but also in Tripoli," Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini told a parliamentary committee meeting.
"I believe an immediate humanitarian suspension of hostilities is required in order to create effective humanitarian corridors," while negotiations should also continue on a more formal ceasefire and peace talks, he said.
