Britain says fighter planes destroy Gaddafi ammunition dumps

London, March 28 :

 Ammunition dumps and bunkers used by the forces of Libya's Muammar Gaddafi have been destroyed in air strikes by Britain's Royal Air Force, the ministry of defence in London said Monday.

A spokesman said the ammunition held in the bunkers in the Sabha desert in southern Libya were designated for use in attacks on the cities of Misurata and other targets in northern Libya.

Major General John Lorimer said the fighter aircraft used Storm Shadow missiles to destroy the dumps following armed reconnaissance sorties over Libya over the weekend.

"Initial reports suggest that the bunkers have been destroyed and that the Libyan government has been denied ammunition it uses to threaten civilians in the north of the country," said Lorimer.
