CAIRO - A NATO warplane shot down a scud missile fired from Sirte, Muammar Gaddafi's home city east of Tripoli, Al-Jazeera TV reported on Monday citing information received by one of its correspondents.

Gaddafi's forces, battling a rebellion that is on the verge of toppling the long-time leader, had fired a scud missile earlier in the August which landed in the desert and hurt no one.
