Libya claims French plane shot down, Paris denies

TRIPOLI: Libyan state television said a French warplane was shot down on Saturday in the Njela district of Tripoli, as the West launched air strikes against the forces of Libya's leader Muammar Gaddafi. "Libyan air defences have shot down a French plane in the Njela neighbourhood of Tripoli," it said in the report, without giving further details. The French military swiftly denied the report. Western powers on Saturday launched attacks from the air and sea against Gaddafi's forces under a UN Security Council resolution to impose a ceasefire in a month-long showdown between loyalists and rebels.
