Anger at slow pace of cash flow in Libya

Libyans wait for their wages paid as interim government sits on huge cash reserves released recently.

    In post war Libya, getting money circulating again is a top priority.

    The European Union has released $97bn in frozen assets to Libya's interim government, but many workers still haven't been paid.

    The Libyan central bank says it is confident the money will get to the people but first the transitional government needs to come up with a budget.

    Libyans, who have little confidence in the interim government or the central bank, say they are angry at the slow pace of recovery.
