NATO promises to investigate the latest air strike on Thursday that killed at least five rebel fighters in the eastern town of Brega, less than a week after 13 people died in an alliance bombing in the same area.
It said in a statement:
«NATO is looking into the specific details of an alleged strike on a column of tanks outside of Brega today.
The fighting between Brega and Ajdabiya, where the strike occurred, has been fierce for several days. The situation is unclear and fluid with mechanised weapons travelling in all directions ».
The alliance reiterated it will continue to uphold the UN mandate and strike forces that threaten Libyan civilians.
