BRUSSELS - NATO confirmed on Friday it would end its Libyan mission next week, seven months after launching air and sea operations that helped bring the overthrow and death of Muammar Gaddafi.

Ambassadors from the 28 NATO states meeting in Brussels formalized a preliminary decision reached a week ago to end the mission that NATO took over on March 31 on Oct. 31.

"Our military job is now done," NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said in a message on Twitter confirming the decision.
