"NATO denied a Libyan government charge Thursday that the alliance is intentionally using its airstrikes to assist rebel advances, saying it is sticking to its mandate to protect civilians. Wing Cmdr. Mike Bracken, an alliance spokesman in Naples, Italy, said NATO is 'not involved in the ground battles,' although he acknowledged the alliance is tracking the fighting between rebels and forces loyal to Moammar Gadhafi."
