OTTAWA - Canada will be contacting its allies in the next few days and arranging for the early end of its Libyan military mission, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said on Thursday.

"Our government shall be speaking with our allies to prepare for the end of our military mission in the next few days," Harper said in a statement to reporters in which he also welcomed the news of Gaddafi's death.

A senior official, asking not to be identified, said the Canadian mission would end within two weeks. Shortly after the official spoke, US President Barack Obama also said the US mission there would "soon come to an end."
