NATO chief regrets 'loss of life'

Rasmussen describes "friendly fire" deaths in Libya as "very unfortunate" and insists progress is being made.

    Anders Fogh Rasmussen, the NATO secretary-general, talks to Al Jazeera about what he says is progress being made in implementing UN Security Council resolution 1973 - and about the rebel deaths caused by NATO forces near Brega.

    He says there has been no breach of the arms embargo since NATO has been enforcing it. The bombing of "friendly forces" was a "very unfortunate incident", he says, and he "strongly regrets the loss of life". But the situation on the ground is "very fluid", Rasmussen says.
