Gaddafi forces ‘launched Scud missile’

Military forces loyal to Libyan leader Col Muammar Gaddafi have fired a Scud missile for the first time in the country’s six-month conflict, US defence officials say, quoted by BBC.  They say it was launched from near the coastal city of Sirte and aimed at Brega – currently held by rebels – but landed harmlessly in the desert. Pro-Gaddafi forces are believed to have more than 200 Scuds in their arsenal.The move comes as the rebels continue a push towards the capital, Tripoli. In another development, the United States informed on Monday it has accredited Libyan opposition envoy Ali Aujali as Libya’s new ambassador to Washington.
