AIR DATE: March 4, 2011

Last month, hot on the heels of uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia, the nearby country of Libya launched its own protests. The protesters want to remove their leader, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. But Gaddafi has vowed to fight to the death, and he's already unleashed gunmen and bombers on the protesters, with the death toll reportedly reaching 1000. Libyans in Las Vegas rallied about it this past weekend. So what do local Libyans think about the crisis overseas? We check in with one Libyan who recalls watching hangings on TV when he was a kid.

GUEST
