Ancient art defaced by graffiti in Libya and Central American teens fleeing to the US

A news show produced exclusively from content provided by amateurs. Photos, videos and personal accounts from our network of Observers around the world - all checked by our staff in Paris. First run Saturdays at 8:10 am Paris time.

Story 1: Libya

We begin today in Libya, in a mountain range deep in the Sahara desert. The rocks are covered in ancient paintings, dating back as much as 14,000 years. They're considered a World Heritage Site by the UN, but they're being defaced by graffiti. And with the country still in chaos two and a half years after the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi, things are getting worse.

 

Story 2: United States

Now to the United States, another desert border zone, between Arizona and Mexico. More and more teenagers are making the dangerous crossing, risking their lives to get to the US. On the Mexican side of the border, our Observer helps run a soup kitchen, where he meets the teens just before they start the journey, which can take several days.
