Canada drops 240 smart bombs on Libya but reluctant to reveal cost of mission
The information comes from a weekly briefing on Canada's participation in the NATO-led air campaign over Libya.
The spokesman says Canadian CF-18 fighter jets have flown 324 attack missions so far.
That represents Canada's main contribution to the United Nations-sanctioned international military campaign to protect Libyan citizens from attacks by their leader, Moammar Gadhafi.
The military initially wouldn't reveal how many of the 227-kilogram, laser-guided bombs had been dropped, but relented after reviewing security considerations.
Military officials won't discuss how much those smart bombs cost taxpayers, or how much the entire mission has cost to date.
