CAIRO (Reuters) - Four people were killed in a NATO strike on "civilian and military targets" southwest of the Libyan capital Tripoli on Wednesday, state television Al Jamahiriya said.
"Four citizens were martyred and there were losses in property and farmland in the Bir al-Ghanam area," the television said. It gave no further details.
Rebels say NATO forces have stepped up attacks on areas under the control of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi in recent days.
