MPs to debate Libya intervention

MPs are to debate the UK's involvement in military action in Libya later, culminating in a vote in the Commons.

RAF jets and a Royal Navy submarine launched missile attacks on targets on Saturday after the UN authorised action to protect Libyan civilians.

Military officials have described the attacks as successful so far, but some MPs are expected to question the tactics being used.
