NATO Rear Adm. Russell Harding, the deputy commander of the alliance's operation in Libya, said Friday that NATO warplanes may indeed have hit rebel forces near the town of Brega on Thursday but offered no apology for what was apparently a deadly mistake. Meanwhile, the first-ever United Nations ship containing tons of humanitarian supplies brought relief to the besieged city of Misurata. The ship, chartered by the World Food Program, included food and medical supplies for the tens of thousands of civilians trapped by Libyan leader Moammar Kadafi's armed forces inside the rebel-held city.

Rebel leaders in Libya said Friday that they must accept accidental deaths caused by NATO airstrikes as a consequence of international efforts to protect civilians. "You have to look at the big pictures. The benefits outweigh the damage," rebel spokesman Mustafa Gheriani said. "We have to accept these kinds of mistakes and hope not too many take place. NATO is important for us and has saved a lot of lives. " A NATO-led alliance is leading a battle to prevent Libyan leader Moammar Kadafi's forces from harming civilians in several parts of the country, especially the rebel-controlled east, where pro-Kadafi forces and those opposed to the longtime ruler have been locked in a battlefield stalemate.

In preparation for deregulation of the state's power industry, Southern California Edison on Monday said it sold 10 of its gas-fired power plants, including its Huntington Beach units, for $1.1 billion in one of the largest asset sales by a utility. The Southland-area plants, which can produce a total of 7,532 megawatts, were bought by five companies from around the United States. The plants attracted 40 bidders to an auction that began a year ago.
