NATO's air campaign over Libya officially ends tonight at midnight. For the past seven months NATO has been enforcing a United Nations mandated no fly zone over the North African country.

The military alliance ended its bombing campaign over Libya soon after Moammar Khaddafy's death earlier this month. NATO says its forces carried out 9600 strike sorties, destroying some 5900 military targets.
