    NATO's latest air strike in the eastern Libyan town of Brega that killed at least five people – the second such incident – has raised doubts in the minds of many, who wonder whether it was really a mistake.

    At the same time, rebel fighters who criticised NATO's mission failure to protect civilians in Misurata, do realise that 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.
