TRIPOLI, LIBYA — <br />
<br />
A local artisan looks on at the street as he ponders what has happened to his country since the fall of Gaddafi in 2011. His son was killed by a suicide bomber last year when he was on his way to visit his father during the Muslim holiday of Eid. Life in Tripoli goes on as normal as possible however. The lack of tourism has affected most of the artisans in Tripoli's souks. After sunset, gun fire from local criminal groups can be heard as a state of lawlessness takes over the relative calm that is daylight hours.
