Friendly fire hits Libya rebels

Rebels may forgive NATO over air strike but incident hands propaganda boost to Gaddafi side.

    The NATO strike that hit a pro-democracy convoy outside of the eastern town of Brega killing at least 10 people may have been a mistake.

    Although the population in the country's east is prepared to forgive the mistake, there is less sympathy in other parts of Libya.

    Such incidents may have just given Muammar Gaddafi's spokespeople propaganda ammunition.
