Libya: a future in doubt?

Libya's newly elected premier, wants "one destiny for all his people". But just months after the fall of the Gaddafi regime and with the new parliament about to sit, we have a report from Benghazi about the deep economic challenges still affecting ordinary people. Karin Maree, an analyst with the Economist Intelligence Unit, tells us the petrodollars are flowing back into Libya, but the next year will be crucial to ensuring a national recovery.
