Apaches mark new phase in NATO operations

Helicopters introduced in raids in eastern Libya, marking a new phase in the forces' operations.

    NATO has used helicopters for the first time since its mission began in Libya. British and French helicopters were flown in overnight raids in the country's east.

    Al Jazeera's Sue Turton reports from Libya's eastern frontier on the move that signals a new phase in NATO operations after a three-month standoff.
