A French air strike on Saturday targeted a Libyan military vehicle loyal to leader Moamer Kadhafi that was threatening the civilian population, the French military said.

“The vehicle was clearly identified as being enemy,” army spokesman Colonel Thierry Burckhard said after the first UN-mandated air strike, describing the target as “a vehicle that was threatening the civilian population”.
