WASHINGTON - Missile strikes launched by the United States and Britain as part of a bid to cripple Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's air defenses hit 20 of 22 targets, the US military said on Sunday.

The missile strikes on Saturday caused 'various levels of damage' at 20 of 22 sites, centered around Libyan air defenses, said Lieutenant Commander James Stockman, a spokesman at US Africa Command. Possible damage at two other sites was being assessed, he said.
