BERLIN (Reuters) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Friday that NATO allies were searching for ways to provide funds to Libya's rebels.

"The opposition needs a lot of assistance, on the organizational side, on the humanitarian side, and on the military side," Clinton told reporters after a meeting of NATO foreign ministers.

"There have been a number of discussions about how to best provide that assistance ... who's willing to do what. We're also searching for ways to provide funding to the opposition."
