A Rare Journey with Revolutionary Fighters to Sabha in Southern Libya

The Libyan city of Sabha fell to revolutionary fighters more than a week ago. Senior International Correspondent Ben Wedeman, photographer Mary Rogers and producer Kareem Khadder were there to witness the moment. In fact, the team spent days traveling with a convoy of anti-Gadhafi forces just to get there. They captured the entire journey just for BackStory. Watch all four parts right here!

Part 1: The journey begins.

Part 2: Things start heating up.

Part 3: Working together as a team.

Part 4: The journey is coming to an end.

    9/30/11* Sabha: the media had announced that this town has been taken by the rebels. The truth is that much of the population had fled to avoid the bombings of Nato's aircrafts. So the renegade rats looted the city but when they were returning from this area of the city they met ...w/ Tuaregs who have eliminated all of them.

    I sincerely appreciated Ben's report (and following Backstory) about his crew's work down in Sabha.

    However, he made a reference to Julius Caesar that missed the mark a bit. The phrase "veni, vidi, vici" was not a commentary about his conquest of Gaul – that was a long a difficult struggle. Rather: 'I came, I saw, I conquered' refers to Caesar's later war (a very quick one) in what is today northern Turkey.

    Keep up the great work, though!
