Gun runners supply Libya rebels

Despite an embargo on imports into Libya, rebel fighters receive shiploads of weapons.

    Since the Libyan uprising began in February, revolutionary forces have been in desperate need of weapons.

    An international arms embargo bans imports into the country. But gun runners are finding ways to get supplies to the front line.

    Al Jazeera's Sue Turton reports from Misurata, on how the rebels are getting around the ban.
