Gaddafi's air force significantly damaged- admiral
WASHINGTON, March 22
WASHINGTON, March 22 (Reuters) - Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's air force is now unlikely to have a negative impact on U.N. backed operations after it was hit hard enough by allied military strikes, U.S. Admiral Samuel Locklear told reporters on Tuesday.
Locklear said air forces from the Gulf state of Qatar would be "up and flying" by the weekend as part of efforts to police the no-fly zone.
