US and British forces launch more than 110 cruise missiles into Libya
The U.S. and Britain launched more than 110 Tomahawk missiles at more than 20 targets.
The strikes targeted specifically surface-to-air missile sites and radar detectors that are part of the Libyan military's air defense infrastructure, said Vice Admiral William E. Gortney, commander of U.S. Naval Forces Central Command.
Thousands of Libyans packed into Mr Gaddafi's heavily fortified Tripoli compound to form a human shield against possible air strikes by allied forces.
