WASHINGTON - NATO has not asked the United States to resume strike sorties in Libya, the Pentagon said on Tuesday, as France and Britain criticized the NATO bombing campaign for failing to halt attacks on civilians.

Colonel David Lapan, a Pentagon spokesman, said the 28-member alliance had not requested any change to the US military role in Libya, where US planes halted their attacks on Libyan targets following the initial phase of military action designed to protect civilians against Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's forces.
