WASHINGTON - The Pentagon said on Sunday that it questions all statements from Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's government, including its claim that it would enter into a ceasefire.

The Pentagon reported no aircraft lost in coalition attacks thus far on Libyan air defenses and ground forces and was aware of no civilian casualties in those attacks, Vice Admiral Bill Gortney, director of the US military's Joint Staff told reporters. He added that Libya would likely continue to be able to fly helicopters for now.
