WASHINGTON - The coalition enforcing a no-fly zone over Libya carried out strikes against the command headquarters of one of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's most loyal units, which has been one of the most active attacking civilians, U.S. Admiral Bill Gortney said on Monday.

Gortney, the director of the US military's Joint Staff, told reporters the coalition had fired six Tomahawk cruise missiles in the past 24 hours and had carried out 178 air sorties, most of them strike-related aimed at Gaddafi's military.

He said the US had no confirmed report of any civilian casualty caused by coalition forces since it began enforcing a UN resolution authorizing military action to protect Libyan civilians from attacks by Gaddafi's forces.
