Libya – Feb. 23, 2011

Aljazeera Live English is providing up to date information from Libya.

Juan Cole says that 30% of Libya (in the east) is in the hands of dissidents, and provides maps and more intellligence, including this:

“Aljazeera Arabic is showing footage of the Libyan military command in the district of al-Jabal al-Akhdar declaring its allegiance to the protest movement.”

and this:

“The border with Egypt is in the hands of the Youth Movement, and the Egyptian government at the Bedouin village of Sallum (pop. 14,000) is allowing the border to remain open, permitting supplies and medicine to flow into the eastern cities. This Egyptian policy is tacit support for the revolt”

as well as a summary of U.S. corp. media correspondents (CNN’s Ben Wedeman, Richard Engel of NBC) who are reporting from Libya, at least Benghazi.
