Netherlands to send F16s to enforce arms embargo

The Dutch government says it will deploy six F-16 fighter jets, a refueling plane and a navy minesweeper to help enforce the arms embargo against Libya.
Prime Minister Mark Rutte says his Cabinet approved the decision on Tuesday and sent a letter informing Parliament of the move.
Rutte said the government may also contribute to efforts to enforce the no-fly-zone over Libya if NATO requests Dutch military assistance.
