NATO airstrikes hit a bakery and a restaurant in the Libyan city of al-Brega Saturday, killing 15 civilians, a Libyan government official told CNN, though the alliance countered that claim.

NATO said it had struck key command-and-control centers. The alliance said there was “no indication of civilian casualties in connection with these strikes.”

Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi’s forces have occupied buildings in an abandoned area of al-Brega from where they are launching attacks on civilians, a NATO statement said. The alliance monitored the buildings and said it determined them to be clear military targets.

“This continues to show Gadhafi’s reprehensible tactics of placing military assets and operations at the heart of civilian neighborhoods,” said Lt. Gen. Charles Bouchard, NATO commander for the Libya campaign.
