BEIRUT - Libyan government forces dropped bombs on four large oil storage tanks in the contested western city of Misrata, destroying the tanks and sparking a fire that spread to four more, a rebel spokesman said on Saturday.

Government forces used small planes normally used to spray pesticides for the overnight attack in Qasr Ahmed close to the port, said rebel spokesman Ahmed Hassan.

Rebels notified NATO about the planes before the attack but there was no response, he said.
