Libya's uprising in perspective

A look at how people are rebuilding their lives along vital coastal road where some of the heaviest fighting occurred.

    It was on Libya's main coastal road that much of the fighting between Muammar Gaddafi's forces and NTC fighters took place. It is a crucial highway that connects most of the oil-producing areas.
