Return to Libya

Three months after the fall of Tripoli, life inLibya's capital is slowly returning to normal.  Businesses have reopened, and traffic jams are replacing the huge crowds in what is now known as Martyr's Square.   Producer Jomana Karadsheh spent many long days and nights covering Libya's revolution.    She returned to the country recently, and sent us a BackStory documenting some of what’s changed.

BackStory fans know Jomana from her many on-air appearances; but she became even more familiar this summer, when she and Matthew Chance spent days trapped inside the Rixos Hotel.  You can revisit those pieces here:

Tweeting from the Rixos – Matthew Chance's Tweets and live shots tell the story from inside the Rixos

Leaving the Rixos – Matthew, Jomana and the other journalists get out of the hotel

After the Rixos – The team reunites with the rest of the CNN crew, and goes on the air to talk about their experiences

    The oil leak is stopped for now as the cap on the well is wirnokg. The two relief wells will soon be in operation and when they are they will insert the mud and cement that will permanently seal the leaking well and then the relief wells will be used to pump oil to ships that will store it and transfer it to land based processors. The relief wells will reduce the pressure on the leaking well. There is still the possibility the relief wells may not be able to push the mud and cement into the leaking well and that would create a whole new problem for BP.
