What a cluster-Obama!
BREGA, Libya (AFP) – NATO voiced concern on Saturday about reports of civilian deaths in a coalition air strike near Brega as rebels claimed victory in the battle for the key Libyan oil town.
A rebel spokesman in the town of Misrata, 214 kilometres (132 miles) east of Tripoli, also reported fierce fighting there on Saturday.
The chief rebel spokesman told reporters coalition warplanes had killed 13 people, four of them civilians, in an air raid some 15 kilometres east of Brega on Friday.
“Thirteen dead, seven injured by friendly fire. It was a regrettable occurrence,” Abdulhafiz Ghoga said, calling them “unintentional deaths.”
“The leadership is working on preventing a re-occurrence,” he added.
