Libyans register for landmark elections

Demands of militias and other groups have complicated Libya's first step toward democracy.

    Registration is under way in Libya for next month's elections, bringing new challenges to the fledgling democracy.

    The polls are the first step toward democracy since the fall of deposed leader Muammar Gaddafi, but already various groups are ensuring their voices will be heard.
