Greek official: Libyan jet flies to Egypt

A Greek official says a private Libyan jet has crossed through Greek-monitored airspace heading from Libya to Egypt.

The official says the small civilian aircraft flew through the airspace monitored by Greek air-traffic controllers for about 15 minutes on Wednesday. The official isn't saying who was on the plane. Greek state TV says the plane belongs to the Libyan government but cites no source for its information.

The Greek official spoke only on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to give details of the flight.

There have been no public contacts between the Libyan regime and Egypt's ruling generals since the Libyan uprising broke out on Feb. 15.
