BENGHAZI, Libya - The head of rebel forces in eastern Libya said an air strike on Thursday on a rebel tank convoy appeared to be a case of "friendly fire" by NATO forces but it did not inflame tension between the two.

Wounded rebels brought to a hospital in Ajdabiyah in rebel-held east Libya earlier had said they were hit by a NATO strike outside the oil port of Brega, the focus of a week-long battle between rebels and forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi.

"We are not questioning the intentions of NATO, because they should be here to help us and the civilians, but we would like to receive some answers regarding what happened today," Abdel Fattah Younes told a news conference in Benghazi.
