The United States carried out its first drone strike in Libya on Saturday, the Pentagon said, two days after approving the use of pilotless aircraft to aid rebels fighting Moamer Kadhafi’s forces.

“The first Predator strike in Libya occurred today in the early afternoon local time (our morning time EDT),” a US military press spokesman said in a statement sent to AFP.

A NATO statement said a “regime Multiple Rocket Launcher (MRL) in the vicinity of Misrata,” was destroyed “at approximately 1100 GMT today” when a drone intervened in the strikes.

“The MRL has been used against civilians in Misrata,” it said, adding: “NATO has kept up a high operational tempo — over 3,000 sorties since we took full command of the mission, almost half of them strikes.

“We have struck a broad range of targets across the country – tanks and rocket launchers, armoured vehicles and ammunition stores, command and control sites.”
