U.S. extends participation in airstrikes on Libya another 48 hours

NATO's request was granted by the U.S. for an extension of 48 hours of American participation in airstrikes against targets in Libya, MSNBC.com reported.

NATO asked the U.S. to extend their support by two days in a mission that started two weeks ago. The U.S. was originally going to hand off all strike missions to other nations by Saturday, U.S. officials said on Thursday, according to Fox News.com.

Although Muammar al-Qaddafi is still in power, America's naval and air forces were going to stop their combat missions in Libya, Fox News.com reported.
