Libyan rebels struggle to pay wages

Banks in the rebel stronghold of Benghazi are running low on cash.

    Libya, in the midst of unrest, is running very low on cash, but opposition leaders are working hard on different fronts to get the finances they need to keep the part of the country they control operating.

    Recently, the Transitional National Council managed to receive $129 million from the one shipment of crude oil to Qatar - an effort appreciated by many in Benghazi. But much more is still needed as banks in the rebel stronghold feel the pinch.
