Tearsheet of the Day | Saturday 19 May 2012
Mikko writing here. Was browsing through Saturday’s Telegraph Magazine at a coffee shop this afternoon. Found this Lorenzo Meloni photograph of militiamen patrolling streets in Benghazi, arresting. Opens ‘Tug of War’, an article by Peter Oborne and Richard Cookson on parts of Libya being at the mercy of rival militias.
Caption in the magazine: Militiamen patrolling the streets of Benghazi, Libya’s second largest city. In March, tribal leaders unilaterally declared the formation of a new state in the oil-rich east of the country with its own parliament, police, and courts. Benghazi would be its capital.
Meloni’s name didn’t ring a bell, but having look at his work now, I do remember seeing The Streets of Yemen At Night feature that was posted on Lightbox last year.
