A NATO warplane on Monday shot down a Scud missile fired from Sirte, Moammar Kadafi’s hometown east of Tripoli, according to Al Jazeera network reports.

Kadafi’s forces, battling a rebellion that descended on Tripoli on Sunday and appears on the verge of toppling the longtime leader, had fired a Scud missile earlier in August, which landed in the desert and did not cause any injuries.
