UK military rescue plane 'shot at' in Libyan desert

Three RAF Hercules aircraft have rescued a further 150 people - including 20 Britons - from the Libyan desert, the Defence Secretary Liam Fox has said.

The BBC's Nikki Fox in Malta has been speaking to some of those who were rescued, and who described a "dangerous operation" in which one of the military aircraft was shot at and left with two bullet marks.
