LONDON - Britain's military operations in Libya have cost 250 million pounds ($405 million) so far, the BBC reported on Wednesday, citing government sources.

It said details were expected to be announced in a written ministerial statement on Thursday.

Britain has been contributing to NATO's operation in Libya to enforce a no-fly zone since March. The government originally said it would cost tens of millions but last week UK Treasury Chief Secretary Danny Alexander said it could run "into the hundreds of millions" of pounds.
