A French war plane opened fire on a vehicle in Libya at 1645 GMT on Saturday as it enforced a UN resolution calling for a no-fly zone and protection of rebels from Moamer Kadhafi's forces, the French military said.

"We opened fire at 5:45 pm (French time) on an unspecified vehicle," army spokesman Colonel Thierry Burckhard told journalists, adding that the French military was "assured of the threat" the vehicle presented.
