Libyan asset freeze affects businesses across Africa

The conflict in Libya is having an impact way beyond the country's borders.

Colonel Gaddafi's government has invested in businesses across Africa and under UN sanctions those assets will be frozen.

The Libyan leader has also built close ties with traditional kingdoms and the Muslim community where he still has some support.

In Africa there is a degree of unease about the allied air strikes and what many see as a push for regime change.

Will Ross reports from Uganda.
