NATO urges Gadhafi troops to give up

NATO urges Gadhafi troops to give up

NATO says it is stepping up psychological warfare operations aimed at persuading troops loyal to Moammar Gadhafi to abandon the fight.
Wing Cmdr. Mike Bracken said Tuesday that NATO planes have been dropping leaflets and broadcasting messages to Libyan forces urging them "to return to their barracks and homes."
Bracken said the messages also have advised pro-regime troops to "to move away from any military equipment" that could be targeted by NATO's strike aircraft.
He did not provide further details on the psychological operations. But the U.S. has been using a specially modified air force C-130 transport to broadcast messages to Libyan forces in AM, FM, high-frequency radio, TV and military communications bands.
