Nato will not apologise for Libya strike error

Nato has refused to apologise for a "friendly fire" attack on rebel tanks in eastern Libya that killed several people on Thursday.

Rear Admiral Russell Harding said until Thursday's incident, Nato had not been aware rebel troops had started to use tanks.

He told a news conference that "until yesterday, we had no information that... the opposition forces were using tanks".
