UK PM to ponder Apache deployment

Source: Press TV

The British premier says he will look for more information about the risks of deploying attack helicopters to Libya amid rising concerns over UK's role in the Libya war.

David Cameron's remark followed a Thursday meeting of the cabinet and the national Security Council, where the ministers were to discuss about the deployment of Apache attack helicopters to Libya.

Analysts have considered the move as significant step to increase the role of the British government in the Libya war -- the government denied such a role.

The Chief of the Defence Staff, General Sir David Richards, said that deploying Apache ground attack helicopters could be part of "ratcheting up" the pressure on Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi.

According to sources, the helicopters and their pilots are presently exercising in the Mediterranean, preparing to be deployed to Libya.

The helicopters can swiftly attack small targets in the urban areas, which are not possible by the currently used jets.

The French government has also announced that it will be deploying the French Tiger attack helicopters to Libya, in a move to increase military pressures on Gaddafi.
