NATO is coming under fire for its actions in Libya -- both for not doing enough to protect civilians in Misurata in the west of the country, and for overzealousness in launching misguided air strikes in the east.
Situation Remains Fluid in Battle for Libya
(Al Jazeera English: 0738 PST, April 7, 2011) NATO's latest air strike in the eastern Libyan town of Brega that killed at least five people -- the second such friendly fire incident this week -- has raised doubts in the minds of many, who wonder whether it was really a mistake.
At the same time, rebel fighters who criticized NATO's mission failure to protect civilians in Misurata, do realize they cannot win the battle against the Libyan leader, Muammar Gaddafi, alone.
Thousands of civilians have also begun to flee intense fighting particularly in the coastal areas between Brega and Ajdabiya, further east. Al Jazeera's Gerald Tan reports.
