Key points
A US warplane has made a crash-landing in Libya while taking part in the US-led military campaign to enforce a no-fly zone.
The US-led coalition has been in action over Libya since Saturday, enforcing a UN resolution to protect civilians from Libyan leader Col Muammar Gaddafi's forces. The US says it will transfer its leading role on Libya within days, to share the burden among international forces.
The US and the UK are reported to be in favour of Nato leading the campaign, but Turkey is uneasy about it and France has objected because it is worried this may alienate Arab nations, whose support is crucial to the campaign.
Divisions have also emerged among the allies as to whether Col Gaddafi is a legitimate target.
