Thousands of lost lives. Scores of ruined houses, hospitals, schools. Dozens of paralyzed enterprises and power stations. Destroyed cultural heritage and ancient cities. Such are the consequences of NATO's five-month war in Libya seen through photographer's eyes. The pictures were taken by a Russian photographer in Libya between April and July. They show the courage and sorrow of ordinary Libyans. This is what remained after a bombing of a children's art center. These are funerals of those killed in a night air attack on Tripoli. Several thousand people, military and civilians, have died in NATO air strikes on Lybia since March. NATO may bomb Libya, but it cannot break the will of the Libyan people in defending their right to shape their country's future. Such is the message of this exhib...

With the country divided between rival clans, some are beginning to miss the old regime, however despised it was at the time.

Perched high in Libya’s north-western Nafusa Mountains, near the capital Tripoli, it played a key role in the revolution. It was here that Gaddafi’s first missiles fell in the west of the country. It was also in Zintan that Saif al-I...

https://goo.gl/0wFBzp Outfoxing the 'Desert Fox': Stunning WWII pictures reveal war-torn Libya as British and US Allies rolled in to kick Rommels' Nazi panzers out of North Africa. These remarkable images show Libya during the Second World War as the Axis and Allies battled ferociously to win control of North Africa. Some of the most famous generals of the war, including American George Patton, Nazi Erwin Rommel and Britain's Bernard Montgomery, led their armies into a brutal desert conflict that lasted from 1940 and 1943. Some of the harrowing shots reveal the devastation wrought after a daylight raid on Tripoli. Others show roofless buildings barely standing in Tobruk and an Italian soldier lying dead in Derna after a British artillery strike. Happier photographs capture Lieutenan...

Libyan families displaced more than a year ago from the coastal city of Benghazi are now returning to their homes after troops loyal to the country's recognized government ousted Islamic militants. Government forces have long been battling Islamic and other armed groups in Benghazi, which has seen some of the worst fighting in the conflict that sprung after the fall of long-time dictator Muammar Gaddafi five years ago. Our reporter Zindzi Kibiku has that story.

A relatively new player in Libya's civil war has claimed its biggest victory yet. A coalition of tribal militias called the Benghazi Defence Brigades has captured the country's key oil facilities. The group has pledged allegiance to the UN-backed Government of National Accord based in Tripoli. But the rival Libyan National Army in Tobruk considers them terrorists, and has launched a counter-offensive to retake the port. The US says those forces are backed by Russia, accusing Moscow of trying to do in Libya, what it's done in Syria.

Maybe ive been fooling myself
for thinking you should come back
and my last letter's going to break
all of the bridges we've spent years to make
all i can do is explain
all of the reasons i cannot stay
ive been to the front lines
and now there's no trace of hope left inside
ive been taken too far
i cracked when i tried to press my luck
hoping you'd come pick me up
but my heart is war torn, war torn
if one's born into battle
and doesnt know any other kind of life
how could the battle seem so bad
when its all you've known and all you've had
ive been taken too far
i cracked when i tried to press my luck
hoping you'd come pick me up
but my heart is war torn
