BRUSSELS—NATO aircraft sank eight warships belong to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's forces in overnight attacks, the alliance said on Friday.
The ships were sunk in coordinated attacks on the ports of Tripoli, Al Khums and Sirte, an alliance statement said.
"Given the escalating use of naval assets, NATO had no choice but to take decisive action to protect the civilian population of Libya and NATO forces at sea," Rear-Admiral Russell Harding, deputy commander of the NATO mission in Libya, said in the statement.
