    When rebels stormed the Libyan capital a week ago, they took control of some neighbourhoods. Abu Salim was not one of them.

    It was a stronghold of the Libyan government.

    Abu Salim witnessed a fierce fight over the next few days, and was one of the last in Tripoli to fall under rebel control.

    But it remains a divided neighbourhood with divided loyalties, much like the rest of Libya.
