Divided loyalties in Tripoli neighbourhood

Abu Salim may now be under rebel control after days of fighting but some are still loyal to the old regime.

    When rebels stormed the Libyan capital a week ago, they took control of some neighbourhoods, but Abu Salim was not one of them.

    Abu Salim, a stronghold of Muammar Gaddafi's government, witnessed fierce fighting over the next few days, and was one of the last areas of Tripoli to fall under rebel control.

    But it remains a divided neighbourhood with divided loyalties, much like the rest of Libya.
