ALGIERS - NATO air strikes hit government weapons depots near Zintan, southwest of the Libyan capital, a rebel spokesman in the town told Reuters on Sunday.

"NATO struck weapons depots five minutes ago in an area which lies about 30 km (20 miles) south-east of Zintan. We heard a loud explosion ... I think the strike hit some of them (the depots)," the spokesman, called Abdulrahman, said by telephone.

"We are now at a cemetery burying 11 people martyred during yesterday's fighting, in which 35 other fighters were also wounded," he said from the rebel-held town.
