Story Text: A NATO airstrike hit a boat in Tripoli's port in the late hours of Thursday (May 19), a Libyan official said.
Journalists were taken by officials from Libya's information ministry early on Friday (May 20) to film a burning boat from distance.
NATO is enforcing UN resolution 1973 that calls for a no-fly zone and the protection of Libyan civilians from Muammar Gaddafi's forces who have sought to crush a rebellion calling for political freedoms and an end to his four decade rule.
