Libyan Warplane Shot Down as Gadhafi Violates No-Fly Zone 

US State Department(MISURATA, Libya) -- Moammar Gadhafi has violated the no-fly zone imposed over Libya, ABC News has learned.

A Libyan warplane -- a G-2 Galeb -- was reported flying over Misurata.  The aircraft was promptly taken down after French fighter jets shot at it.

This incident is believed to be the first time a Libyan warplane was sent up and the first time one was shot down.

Earlier this month, the United Nations authorized the imposition of the no-fly zone in Libya, which extends west from Benghazi.
