  1. A US warplane has crash-landed in Libya, a US military spokesman says.

    The spokesman, Kenneth Fiddler, told the BBC there was no indication that the F-15 Eagle was brought down by hostile fire.

    He said one crew member had been recovered safely. An operation is under way to recover another.

    It is not clear where the plane went down. The development follows a third night of allied air strikes against Cola Gaddafi's forces.
