When rebels stormed the Libyan capital a week ago, they took control of some neighbourhoods, but Abu Salim was not one of them.
Abu Salim, a stronghold of Muammar Gaddafi's government, witnessed fierce fighting over the next few days, and was one of the last areas of Tripoli to fall under rebel control.
But it remains a divided neighbourhood with divided loyalties, much like the rest of Libya.
