NATO says the US military is pulling its warplanes from front-line missions Monday and shifting to a support role in the Libyan conflict. Britain, France and other NATO allies will now provide the fighter and attack jets to conduct intercept and ground attack missions. The hand-over is expected to take place late in the day, said a NATO official who spoke on condition of anonymity because of regulations.
