Cost of US action in Libya questioned

The high price tag of another military campaign has come under scrutiny.

    Hundreds of millions of dollars have already been spent by the US and much more is committed to the military mission in Libya.

    President Barack Obama has said it is in the country's national interest to have intervened in the north African state.

    But the massive cost of yet another military campaign is being questioned.
