BRUSSELS - Planning for NATO's no-fly operation over Libya assumes a mission lasting 90 days, but this could be extended or shortened as required, a NATO official said on Friday.

"Much of the planning assumptions were based on a three-month planning window, but should the (NATO commander) feel it's necessary to extend it, then he would simply have to say... I am anticipating it may be more or less," the official said.

NATO officials said the mission, approved on Thursday, was expected to involved dozens of aircraft from the 28-nation military alliance.
