March 23, 2011 14:28

LONDON - Kuwait and Jordan are to make logistical contributions to back efforts to protect civilians in Libya, Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron said on Wednesday, emphasizing broad support for operations.

He also said a no-fly zone was in place over Libya, and 11 nations were contributing over 150 aircraft.

"I think as we discussed on Monday there has been an early and good effect in terms of regime forces having to retreat from Benghazi, but clearly there is great concern about what the regime is doing in Misrata," he told parliament.

"We will be getting logistic contributions from countries like Kuwait and also Jordan," he added.
