The Libyan Refugee Crisis
While the world focuses on Japan for the time being, the fight in Libya between pro and anti-Gaddafi supporters continues. Gaddafi seems to be gaining the upper-hand by using heavy military equipment against the poorly equipped rebels. Caught in the cross fire are the foreign workers trying to get out.
