South Africans protest NATO bombing of Libya

The Associated Press: "PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) — More than 1,000 South Africans have rallied at the U.S. Embassy to call for an end to NATO strikes on Libya.
Wednesday's union-organized rally ended with the handing over of a memorandum to U.S. officials saying bombings are undermining African efforts to negotiate a solution.
South African President Jacob Zuma is leading stalled African Union mediation efforts. He has faced criticism at home for supporting a U.N. resolution calling for protecting civilians in Libya."
