Religious controls lifted in Benghazi

Once banned religious gatherings now free to operate in opposition-held Libyan city.

    In Libya's eastern city of Benghazi, the opposition's version of governance is in full swing.

    Before Libya's uprising, large religious gatherings would have been unthinkable - but today in the opposition-held city, some Muslim clerics say times have changed.

    Al Jazeera's Tony Birtley reports from Benghazi, where reforms are already being put into action.
