Libya: Sirte and Misrata revisited

In early 2011, the Arab Spring reached Libya, after Tunisia and Egypt. On February 19th, a few days after Benghazi, Misrata rose up against the Gaddafi regime. A few months later, the last Gaddafi bastion of Sirte also fell. Today, both towns are struggling to get back on their feet. Insecurity, housing problems and an education system in ruins are just some of their problems. Our reporters went to Sirte and Misrata.
