More Air Strikes In Western Libya


NATO says it has begun accelerating its air strikes in the western half of Libya, which is still largely under leader Muammar Qaddafi's control.

The coalition said in a statement on July 2 that it has destroyed more than 50 military targets in the west this week.

NATO says the strikes are aimed at hitting forces loyal to Qaddafi who have been massing in western cities and along "major lines of communication."

NATO has been striking Libya since March under a mandate to protect civilians.
