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.
