Tripoli faces severe water shortage

Months of conflict have left areas of Libya without electricity to power pumps.

    Libyans are experiencing a severe water shortage in the capital Tripoli.

    While rumours circulate that it is due to sabotage or poisoning by Gaddafi forces, the truth is that the water tanks are empty because there has been no electricity to power pumps for 45 days.

    James Bays reports from Tripoli.
