LONDON - Britain's Ministry of Defense said on Sunday that one of its submarines had again fired guided Tomahawk missiles as part of a second wave of attacks on Libyan air defense systems.

"For a second time, the UK has launched guided Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles from a Trafalgar Class submarine in the Mediterranean as part of a coordinated coalition plan to enforce the resolution," Major General John Lorimer said in an emailed statement.

"We and our international partners are continuing operations in support of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973."
