Libya tensions show up in Bani Walid

Members of the same tribe stand on opposite sides of the divide in former stronghold of Muammar Gaddafi.

    Libya's new interim prime minister has promised to make national reconciliation one of his top priorities, but in the town of Bani Walid, a former stronghold of Muammar Gaddafi, this may prove to be difficult.

    The new head of the main hospital in Bani Walid is a pharmacist turned NTC fighter, and it is apparent that this is not a place where the anti-Gaddafi fighters are welcomed like heroes.

    There is little communication between the fighters and the visitors, even if both belong to the same tribe.
