Egypt and the United Arab Emirates secretly carried out airstrikes against Islamist militias inside Libya, U.S. officials said Tuesday, decrying the intervention as an escalation of the North African country's already debilitating turmoil. They said the United States had no prior notification of the attacks. One official said the two countries and Saudi Arabia have been supporting for months a renegade general's campaign against Libyan militant groups, but that the Saudis don't appear to have played a role in recent strikes.

Libya is undergoing its worst violence since the overthrow of dictator Moammar Gadhafi three years ago. A U.S. official said the recent airstrikes weren't done with authorization from Libya's government.

In a joint statement, the United States joined with Britain, France, Germany and Italy in expressing its concerns, saying ""outside interference in Libya exacerbates current divisions and undermines Libya's democratic transition."
