UK admits SAS incursion

British Defense Secretary Liam Fox has confirmed media reports about eight members of the SAS commando unit made their way into Libya.

A report in The Sunday Times earlier claimed the unit had been seized by rebel forces in Libya as they tried to put UK diplomats in touch with rebels out to topple the Gaddafi regime.

The report also said that eight SAS men, in plain clothes but armed, were captured and are now in Banghazi – the stronghold of the opposition forces out to topple Moammar Gaddafi.
