Paris (AP) -- France's defense minister says a french fighter jet
fired on the convoy carrying ousted Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi. Gerard Longuet told reporters in Paris on Thursday that the
French strike stopped the convoy of about 80 vehicles heading for
Bani Walid, but did not destroy it. He says that fighters on the ground then intercepted the vehicle carrying Gadhafi himself. Libya's interim leadership announced that Gadhafi was killed Thursday. NATO officials say the alliance's governing body will meet Friday to decide to end the seven-month bombing campaign over Libya. NATO's Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said after the
latest developments on the battlefield -- the death of leader
Moammar Gadhafi -- "that moment has now moved much closer." He said the decision to terminate the airstrikes would be made
in coordination with the U.N. and Libya's interim government. Diplomats said Friday's meeting would decide when and how to
wind up the operation. A diplomat speaking on condition of anonymity said this could come in the next day or two if NATO's military commanders confirmed there was no more need for the operation to continue.
