BREGA, Libya - A Western coalition air strike hit a group of rebels on the eastern outskirts of Brega late on Friday, killing at least 10 of them, rebel fighters at the scene said on Saturday.
A Reuters correspondent saw the burnt out husks of at least four vehicles including an ambulance by the side of the road near the eastern entrance to the oil town. Men prayed at freshly dug graves nearby.
"Some of Gaddafi's forces sneaked in among the rebels and fired anti-aircraft guns in the air," said rebel fighter Mustafa Ali Omar. "After that the NATO forces came and bombed them."
