It's been a year since the Libyan uprising that toppled Muammar
Gaddafi began. In Benghazi, they gathered on Friday at the police station where
the first march against Gaddafi's rule kicked off - the luster of
Libyans lit the "Torch of Freedom" and marked the
events that ended the former leader's 40 year hold on the country. They
also remembered those killed in the fight.
Security in the eastern city is higher than usual ahead
of the anniversary on February 17th. Adding to that is a recent boast
by Saadi Gaddafi, one of the fallen leader's sons. Saadi, who is in
exile in Niger
, recently said he is toying with the idea of returning to Libya
and starting an uprising.
