WASHINGTON - The United States has deployed two more Predator drones for surveillance operations over Libya, a US official told Reuters on Wednesday, as Muammar Gaddafi's forces face unprecedented pressure.




The drones arrived earlier this week, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. It was not immediately clear how many US drones were currently deployed on the NATO mission.




The U.S. decision to send additional drones follows calls last month by NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen for members of the alliance to provide more air support and comes as Libyan rebels make key advances across the country.
