Robert Siegel talks with reporter Chris Stephen of The Guardian newspaper in Tripoli about uprisings now occurring in Libya.

Now the city is witness to uprisings again. But these are not believed to be pro-Gadhafi uprisings. Rather, they are thought to be an eruption of frustration locally with the Transitional National Council over a perceived lack of transparency — particularly in relation to the country's swelling oil reserves.
