NATO will soon complete its Libyan operation Unified Protector, the alliance's Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said on Monday.

NATO will soon complete its Libyan operation Unified Protector, the alliance's Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said on Monday.

Army Gen. Carter Ham, head of U.S. Africa Command earlier said that American military leaders are expected to give NATO ministers their assessment of the situation during meetings later in the week.

U.S. intelligence and surveillance assets, such as drones, will likely stay in the region to keep watch over weapons caches and prevent the transfer of weapons from Libya into neighboring countries.

But Ham said air strikes would likely end, unless specifically requested by the Libyan transitional government.

NATO took over command of the mission in March, after it was initially led by the U.S. in the early days of the bombing campaign.
