US Agrees to Continue Libya Airstrikes

The United States has agreed to a NATO's request for a 48-hour extension of American participation in the Western coalition's airstrikes on Libya.

Air Force AC-130 gunships, A-10 Thunderbolts and Marine Corps AV-8B Harriers will continue to attack troops loyal to embattled Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi and other sites through Monday evening, the Associated Press reported on Sunday.

The US is shifting the combat role to Britain, France and other allies; however, American air power is still in demand.
