UN Security Council Approves No-Fly Zone Over Libya

Bombs away...

The United Nations Security Council has approved a no-fly zone over Libya to protect civilians and rebels from Libyan government airstrikes.

Thursday's vote was 10 in favor with no votes against. Five countries abstained.

The resolution authorizes UN members to take "all necessary measures" to protect civilians, including a ban on all flights over Libya. The resolution expresses grave concern at the deteriorating situation in Libya, where rebels have been trying to topple long-time leader Moammar Gadhafi.

Colonel Crazy's world is about to get rocked.
