British forces on Sunday took part in a "co-ordinated strike against Libyan air defence systems", the country's military said.

"I can confirm that British armed forces have participated in another co-ordinated strike against Libyan air defence systems," Chief of Defence Staff's Strategic Communications Officer Major General John Lorimer said in a defence ministry (MoD) statement.

"For a second time, the UK has launched guided Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles (TLAM) from a Trafalgar Class submarine in the Mediterranean as part of a coordinated coalition plan to enforce the resolution," Lorimer added.
