PARIS - France increased the number of sorties flown over Libya over the past week to 41 from an average of about 30 since the start of a coalition operation, the defense ministry said on Thursday.

French aircraft destroyed several military vehicles and tanks near Misrata in the past week as well as two ground-to-air missile sites and a communications center in the Sirte region, defense ministry spokesman Thierry Burkhard told a news briefing.
