Protests in Libya to overthrow Muammar Gadhafi and his government continue, and unlike Tunisia and Egypt, it's a far bloodier crisis. The number dead is said to be in the hundreds and Gadhafi is not going to go quietly; he has waged all out war against his people. However, the people are continuing their fight. For more on what's happening in Libya is Joe Stork, deputy director of the Middle East Division for Human Rights Watch. He explains how Human Rights Watch gathers information from such a complicated and violent situation.
