When it is useful to publish old news

In its coverage and comment on the violent uprising in Libya, Open Democracy has published old articles to offer an insight into the regime.

The news website has been re-releasing previously published articles to great effect.

Open Democracy has published an article that was originally written the mark Gaddafi’s 40-year control of the country. The site has also republished a 2006 article on Libya’s decision to convict five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor of infecting child patients in Benghazi with the HIV virus.
