LIMASSOL - Cyprus said on Sunday it opposed any use of British bases on the island to enforce a no-fly zone over Libya but conceded it had no power to stop their involvement.

Britain has two sovereign military bases on Cyprus, an island in the eastern Mediterranean and a former colony.

A command center to coordinate the movement of British assets over Libya has been set up at an RAF base at Akrotiri, on the southern coast of the island.
