Libyan mountain town seeks to rebuild

In the town of Jadu, where protesters razed regime buildings, rebel leaders are starting from scratch.

    In Jadu, a small town in Libya's western Nafusa Mountains, protesters destroyed many icons of Muammar Gaddafi's regime soon after the uprising began in mid-February.

    Now, Jadu's civic leaders are hoping they can rebuild from the rubble. They asked their angry citizens not to continue attacking symbols of the government, and they're trying to restart the town's administrative filing system, where some binders contain only one or two sheets of paper.

    Police officers in the new Jadu - many of them the same men who served in the old Jadu - hope they are accepted by the town's people in order to avoid a security vacuum.
