LONDON (AP) - U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron says coalition forces have neutralized Libyan air defenses and helped avert a bloodbath in the North African country.
Cameron says Moammar Gadhafi was in breach of a U.N. Security Council resolution calling for an immediate end to hostilities and that the Libyan leader had lied to the international community by flouting an immediate cease-fire.
Cameron told U.K. lawmakers Monday that through airstrikes, coalition forces helped avert what could have been “a bloody massacre in Benghazi.”
