Her AK

If it was just a guy firing straight into the air, this never would have made the wires. So it’s not just a freedom-fighter shot, but one more picture conveying the message that the larger Middle East democracy movement has a gender-equality element to it. And yes, the photo does has an SNL vibe to it, the rag-tag nature of the Libyan resistance having a special appeal — at least, from safe distance.

(photo: Goran Tomasevic/Reuters. caption: A female rebel fighter supporter shoots an AK-47 rifle as she reacts to the news of the withdrawal of Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi’s forces from Benghazi March 19, 2011. A rebel spokesman said on Saturday anti-government troops had driven out forces loyal to Muammar Qaddafi who had entered the eastern city of Benghazi.)

    whose hand is that at her back? She’s being held up by some ghostly figure hiding from the camera!

      On the Euronews channel the video shows her firing the gun given to her by the man behind her. She lets off a few rounds then he takes the gun back.
      There ya go! Let off a few rounds, now give me my AK back. Thanks.
