Libya crisis in maps: Day by day
Monday 21 March
US and British forces fired 12 Tomahawk cruise missiles at targets overnight, including command and control operations, a Scud surface-to-surface missiles facility and an air defence site.
Air strikes: French, Spanish, Italian, Danish and US warplanes took part in missions to enforce the no-fly zone over Benghazi.
On the ground: Forces loyal to Gaddafi pulled back from the rebel stronghold of Benghazi. Advances against Ajdabiya and Misrata were stalled by the coalition attacks, according to a US national security official.
Reports from Misrata say Gaddafi's troops fired on a crowd of unarmed people in the centre of the city and civilians were reported captured and brought to Misrata by Gaddafi's men, for human shields.
