LONDON - An international coalition has "largely neutralized" Libyan air defenses and a no-fly zone over the country is now in place, British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Monday.

Cameron said Britain, France, the United States and other nations had made good progress in achieving the aims of the military operation -- destroying Libyan air defenses and protecting civilians from attacks by forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.

"I can announce to the House (parliament) today that coalition forces have largely neutralized Libyan air defenses and that as a result the no-fly zone has effectively been put in place over Libya," Cameron told parliament.
