On March 17, 2011, the United Nations Security Council authorized a ‘no-fly zone’ over the air space of Libya; as cited by SC/10200.

“Demanding an immediate ceasefire in Libya, including an end to the current attacks against civilians, which it said might constitute “crimes against humanity”, the Security Council this evening imposed a ban on all flights in the country’s airspace — a no-fly zone — and tightened sanctions on the Qadhafi regime and its supporters.”
