Brega checkpoint

Taken on 2011-03-04

They wore emblems indicating their position as engineers or paratroopers and said they were defected "special forces" from Benghazi who were awaiting orders. Despite their more impressive appearance, they still seemed to lack the kind of discipline one might see in Western militaries, or perhaps even Gaddafi's own forces.
