France, Norway Will Join Military Intervention in Libya

France and Norway say they will join the international military intervention in Libya after the United Nations Security Council authorized a no-fly zone over the country.

French government spokesman Francois Baroin and Norweigian Defense Minister Grete Faremo announced their countries' participation Friday. French diplomatic sources say international military action would come "within hours" to stop forces loyal to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi from hurting civilians.

Meanwhile, pro-Gadhafi forces bombarded the western rebel-held town town of Misrata Friday, as NATO envoys in Brussels discussed ways to enforce the U.N. Security Council resolution.
