“In the Libyan desert, these anti-Gaddafi rebels launched their attack. For several days they seemed unstoppable. Libya’s fate hung in the balance. Having gained control of the east of the country, the rebels moved west, convinced that victory was close.
“We followed the advance of these novice soldiers, young men who had just grabbed a weapon and joined the rebellion at a moment’s notice.
“Meanwhile, in Green Square in Tripoli, another team of France 24 reporters followed Gaddafi’s supporters, fervent loyalists who said they would stop at nothing to keep him in power.”
