UNITED NATIONS - Sudan has quietly granted permission to use its airspace to nations enforcing a no-fly zone over Libya as US, French, British and other air forces try to pummel the Libyan military, envoys told Reuters.

The United Nations has said nearly a dozen countries have notified Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon they would be involved in the Libya operations to protect civilians under siege in the North African state. Only two Arab countries are on that list, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar.

But UN diplomats familiar with the coalition operations over Libya said there were a number of countries quietly cooperating with the coalition to enable the no-fly zone to happen. One of those countries, they said, was Sudan.
