Fighting back in Libya's media war

Anti-government protesters in Benghazi have opened their own radio station to get their message out.

    With state television in Libya reporting that the situation in the country is normal, anti-government activists have taken to creating their own media outlets to get their message out.

    Several activists in the opposition stronghold of Benghazi have set up a radio station, getting updates from protesters on the ground and disseminating them to the wider public.

    Al Jazeera's Hoda Abdel-Hamid reports from Benghazi, eastern Libya.
