Libyans register for landmark elections

    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.
