New channel for a 'free Libya'

Satellite television channel launches in Qatar with aim of getting Libyan voices heard.

    While pro-democracy fighters and forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi battle for control of key coastal towns, some Libyans have found another way of getting their opinions heard.

    A new satellite television channel was launched in the Gulf state of Qatar on Saturday.

    Simply called Libya, it is a mix of news and talk shows covering developments in the North African country, with funding from abroad.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
