The New York Times explains the intensifying situation and revolts in Libya in several articles. But the Times also attempts to explain the situation through interactive features, graphics, photos and interactive maps.
- Timeline: Colonel Muammar el-Qaddafi
This interactive timeline gives the important dates of Qaddafi’s life and ruling. He has been the leader of Libya since 1969.
- Map of How the Rebellion is Unfolding in Libya
This interactive map offers a way to see where protests and revolts are happening on a large map. Viewers can then read the individual articles from particular dates or revolts for more detailed information.
- Middle East Protests: A Country-by-Country Look
This interactive feature, as The New York Times refers to it, attempts to sort out the confusing, complex and multiple revolts going on in several countries. The feature separates the revolts and protests by country, gives the time in that country and short, timely reports from Times correspondents from certain countries. Social media updates are also included.
It also features a scrolling timeline bar at the top of the page, almost like a banner on the bottom of a television newscast.
