Libyan government forces destroyed four large oil storage tanks in Misurata. They used small pesticide planes to drop bombs in the attack in Qasr Ahmed, which is close to the port. The attack destroyed the four fuel tanks and caused a fire that spread to four more. Rebels say they told NATO about the planes before the attack, but did not receive a response. A rebel spokesman said that this causes a major problem, as the tanks were the only source of oil in the city and could have kept the city fueled for another three months.
