Is Nato going too far in Libya?

BBC Africa HYS Team | 15:02 UK time, Tuesday, 28 June 2011

This week marks 100 days of the International Air Strikes in Libya, and now the mission has been authorised to continue for another 90 days.  

Nato forces have been hitting around 50 targets a day, but the rebels have struggled to take advantage of the coalition air strikes.

The Libyan authorities have accused NATO of targeting civilian infrastructure but NATO has strongly denied this. 

Some Africa Have Your Say contributors got in touch with us on the Facebook to express concern over the operation - one person was particularly perturbed by what he perceived as the extensive destruction of Libyan infrastructure. 

Do you think NATO has gone too far in Libya?  Or not far enough? 

Also, thousands of people in Senegal have taken to the streets of Mbour and the capital Dakar over continuing power cuts.  But Senegal is not the only African country grappling with widespread power cuts.

What is behind the unrest?
