BREGA, Libya - An air strike destroyed two government military vehicles on Tuesday in the east Libyan oil town of Brega, where rebels have clashed with Muammar Gaddafi's forces for five days, rebel fighters said.

"An air strike hit two of the enemies' vehicles," said a rebel army officer in military uniform who gave his name as Colonel Abu Mohammed told Reuters.

The remains of the two trucks mounted with heavy machine guns smouldered near the entrance to the eastern residential area of New Brega, their burning tyres giving off a cloud of acrid smoke.

Trucks drove towards the centre of Brega hauling multiple rocket launchers and heavy machine guns.
