Liyba Inside the regime's brutal prison system

This prison was built inside a ammunition compound just outside the town of Ajdbiya, 5 km into the desert. A prison inside a prison. The cells had one small bared window with no bed or toilet and the size was only 1.5m by 2m. Not even enough space to lye down in. The walls had graffiti from the prisoners telling there story.

Back from Lidya

Got home on Saturday after spending 10 days in sunny Libya. Not verey happy with the photos as they would not let the press to the front line . I tried and got arrested and tried again on my last day and got about 10 Ks from the front. But never mid they will al be used for stock. One thing I have lured is to get in fast when something like this happened's before they all get organized ..
