Gadhafi's forces attack rebels in Benghazi in defiance of U.N.

Warplane is shot down by the rebels; fresh offensive comes after Obama warned Libyan leader not to attack the city

"

BENGHAZI, Libya — Forces loyal to Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi entered the suburbs of the rebel-held city of Benghazi Saturday in defiance of a United Nations resolution, Al-Jazeera television reported.

However, the rebels were fighting back and a warplane flying overhead was shot down.

An Associated Press reporter saw the plane go down in flames outside the city after the area came under shelling. A black cloud went up over the city's southern outskirts.

I have since heard that it was the other way around... it was a rebel plane being shot down by Gaddifis forces... yes the pilot ejected safely, I think you can just see him in the picture ?

U.S. says five-nation coalition launching Libya strikes

WASHINGTON | Sat Mar 19, 2011 4:28pm EDT

(Reuters) - A coalition of the United States and four other nations launched military action against Libya on Saturday, officials said, as the West tries to force Muammar Gaddafi from power.

A U.S. official told reporters on condition of anonymity that a coalition including the United States, France, Britain, Canada and Italy had begun launching strikes on Libya designed to cripple Muammar Gaddafi's air defenses.

At least some Arab nations are expected to join the coalition later, the official said.

A second U.S. official, speaking to Reuters on condition of anonymity, said missiles were launched from a warship against Libyan targets.

U.S. forces and planes will take part in the operation, called "Odyssey Dawn," that will mainly target air defenses around the Libyan cities of Tripoli and Misrata.

Some 25 coalition ships, including three U.S. submarines armed with Tomahawk missiles, are stationed in the Mediterranean, a military slide showed. Five U.S. surveillance planes are also in the area, it showed.
