This military facility named 'Katiba' in the middle of Benghazi was the turning point in the final battle against Gaddafi's forces in Benghazi. Rebels attacked it and burned it down. The bunker has been a complete no-go area for the public, but now as the rebels are in control they come in high numbers to get a closer look at the apparatus of the regime they have been living under for so long. Rebels found a large group of prisoners from the Gaddafi regime still under ground. On 17 February 2011 Libya saw the beginnings of a revolution against the 41 year regime of Col Muammar Gaddafi. .
