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.

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