LONDON — An Egyptian spy and sabotage network helped guide U.S. warplanes to their targets in last month's raid on Tripoli and Benghazi, the official Libyan new agency Jana said Friday.

"The network was entrusted with the task of monitoring military targets and guiding the raiding planes within the framework of coordination between American and Egyptian intelligence," the new agency said in a dispatch received here.
