Two Libyan fighter pilots, with Libyian Air Force, defected on Monday and took off their jets to Malta and they told authorities they had been forced to bomb protesters, Maltese government officials said.

They said the two pilots, both colonels, took off from a base near Tripoli. One of them has requested political asylum.
