Norway has withdrawn its final four F-16 fighter jets from the NATO campaign over Libya, the military has announced.

The aircraft carried out 583 missions, out of a total of 6,493 flown by NATO warplanes since March 31, said Petter Lindqvist, a military spokesman. The planes dropped a total of 569 bombs.

They are now back at their bases in Bodoe in the north of the country and Oerland in the central west.

On June 10, the centre-left Norwegian government announced that it would gradually withdraw the six F-16s it had taking part in the bombing campaign.
