Libyan heritage site starved of business

Instability since the revolution that deposed Gaddafi delivers a heavy blow to Ghadamis's tourist-reliant economy.

    Once called the Pearl of the Sahara, Libya's centuries-old heritage site, Ghadamis, has been devoid of tourists since the uprising against Muammar Gaddafi began last year.

    Residents say the instability created after the downfall of the Gaddafi regime has dealt a heavy blow to the city's tourist-reliant economy.

    Al Jazeera's Omar al-Saleh reports from Ghadamis.
