La censura a Tripoli

This short video was taken hiding the camera on the road from Tripoli to Misrata, just about 7km west from the city center of the besieged port-city. Nawitt el Mahjoub, is the name of the area.
The video is very short and it was not usable in an editing aimed for broadcasting services.
Nevertheless Libyan authorities wanted to see the footage when I went back to the hotel in Tripoli where I and other journos were staying, and I was “asked” not to send the pictures out.
That day, I was told, it was a message of diplomacy and “peace” that was needed from Tripoli.
