Tripoli, Brega under NATO pounding
British jets have carried out massive overnight air raids on depots of anti-aircraft rockets outside the Libyan capital Tripoli.
Near Brega in the east, British and French forces have started using attack helicopters for the first time in the Libya campaign.
Reports say Apache gunships have destroyed some two dozen targets including APCs, tanks, command bunkers, air defence batteries and an important radar.
