Nato weighs Libya no-fly zone options.
Britain and France draft UN security council resolution for no-fly zone as alliance begins 24-hour aerial surveillance over Libya.
Nato has begun 24-hour aerial surveillance over Libya as the alliance’s military planners met in Brussels to discuss options for establishing a no-fly zone.
The plans will be presented to defence ministers from the alliance’s 28 member states, who are due to meet in Brussels on Thursday, but western officials are insistent that Nato will not act without the backing of the UN security council.
The diplomatic discussions come amid reports that Libyan warplanes have launched at least four new air strikes near opposition positions in the oil port of Ras Lanouf in the east of the country. There has been no word on casualties.
NATO NATION LIST:
NOTE: To answer as a “YES” to the question, a NATO nation must have initiated a “No FlyZone” or have bombed Libyan airfields or Command and Control facilities to prevent Libyan aircraft fro taking off. Use of Tomahawk missles for example, would be considered as use of an air support asset, to answer this question.
