"Canadian and British warships patrolling waters off Libya beat back a boat attack on the port of Misrata hours after the city's airport fell to rebels, NATO says. The Canadian frigate HMCS Charlottetown and British destroyer HSM Liverpool came together with a French gunboat not under NATO command to fight off the advance by forces backing Muammar Gaddafi's regime in the early hours, the alliance said in a statement."
