Sweden signs up for Libyan NFZ with 8 Gripens

The Swedish Government has approved the deployment of eight Gripens to enforce the United Nations-mandated Libyan No Fly Zone. However the Swedish deployment does not authorise the Gripens to be used for ground attack missions. The Gripens will be supported by a C-130 and an unidentified "reconnaissance aircraft".
