WASHINGTON - The US Defense Department on Thursday said it has evidence that the Libyan government of Muammar Gaddafi has been using air power.

"We have seen very clearly broadcast reports showing effects of air power being used. Whether or not those were used on rebels, I can't say but ... there is evidence they have used air assets and dropped ordnance," Pentagon spokesman Marine Colonel David Lapan told reporters.
