"Italy has agreed to join the NATO air assault against Libyan military targets. Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi made the decision after conferring with President Obama, the AGI news agency reports. A Cabinet communique says the decision looks to 'increase the scope of the Italian air force's missions,' by way of 'targeted action against specific military objectives in Libya,' with a view to 'protect Libya's civilian population.'"
