Graffiti in Libya

Street vendors in front of graffiti depicting Muammar Qaddafi. After more than 40 years under Qaddafi, Libyans in the rebel stronghold of Benghazi have taken to mocking the Libyan dictator with colorful caricatures. Before residents in the rebel-held east ripped themselves free from Qaddafi's rule, drawing such satirical pictures of the leader in public was unthinkable, and the regime would have severely punished anyone caught doing so.
