Nato: 'Every care taken' over coalition strikes

At least 13 people are reported to have been killed when a coalition plane enforcing the no-fly zone fired on a rebel convoy between Brega and Ajdabiya late on Friday night.

Doctors at a hospital in Ajdabiya told the BBC that three medical students were among the dead.

Nato said it was looking into the incident, adding that it takes reports of civilian casualties very seriously.

Nato spokeswoman Oana Lungescu told the BBC: "We are taking every care to ensure no human life is lost through Nato strikes.

She added: "What we have to remember is that we are enforcing a UN mandate and that is because the whole international community is outraged about the way the Gaddafi forces are systematically attacking civilians."

The attack came after rebels reportedly fired an anti-aircraft gun.
