DEAUVILLE - Britain said helicopters can fly sorties over Libya as it seeks to raise the pressure on Muammar Gaddafi to step aside, British officials said on Thursday.

French Defense Minister Gerard Longuet said on Monday that Britain would start deploying attack helicopters in Libya along with France as part of NATO's operation there.

However, Britain had not confirmed that until now. British ministers gave clearance in principle for the use of Apache helicopters on Thursday and NATO could now call on them.
