Uncollected rubbish raises stink in Libya

Troops called in to clear mess, but residents still angry over rubbish piling up on Tripoli streets.



    Activists in Tripoli have been protesting against uncollected rubbish piling up on the streets of the Libyan capital.

    Government troops have been called in to help clear up the mess. But, people in the city's Sidi Sayah area are angry.

    They say that if the transitional council cannot resolve the problem they should not be in power.
