French military jet fires on Libyan military vehicle

PARIS (AP) - A French official says a French fighter jet has fired on a Libyan military vehicle, in a first reported strike in the international campaign to enforce a no-fly zone.

A French Defense Ministry spokesman, Thierry Burkhard, says the strike was reported around 1645 GMT Saturday.

Burkhard says the target was confirmed as a military vehicle, but it was not clear what kind.

That word comes shortly after top officials from the United States, Europe and the Arab world announced immediate military action to protect civilians as Gadhafi's forces attacked Benghazi.
