Synopsis >

A bullet-scarred building in the Libyan city of Misrata is now a polling station. Voters line up, cast votes, and dip their fingers in ink to mark their participation in the first election here in more than 40 years. Misrata was the scene of the bloodiest battle in the eight-month war that ousted Muammar Gaddafi. Its voters will elect 28 members of a local council - tasked with rebuilding a city of 300,000 people which was bombed beyond recognition by Gaddafi forces.
