NATO to conclude air campaign over Libya

BRUSSELS

This follows the announcement by the /*United Nations*/ Security Council to lift the no-fly zone and end military action to protect civilians.

Monitoring air patrols are expected to run until Monday to make sure civilians are no longer threatened.

/*NATO*/ officials said the operation was one of the most successful in the organization's history.

NATO's 26,000 defensive attacks, including 9,600 strike missions, destroyed about 5,900 military targets since they started on March 31.
