Libya's football revolution

Andy Richardson reports from Bata on the Libyan team who defied Muammar Gadaffi to play in the Africa Cup of Nations.


    After the compelling drama of the opening games of the Africa Cup of Nations, Andy Richardson reports from Bata on a Libya team who lost to Equatorial Guinea in the dying minutes of their Group A match, but who may have won a brighter footballing future after the fall of Muammar Gadaffi.

    Libya qualified for the tournament in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea despite the upheaval of revolution. Andy talks to Walid El Khatroushi, a player who fought on the front line for rebel forces, and hears how players who spoke out in favour of Gadaffi have been dropped.
