Derna, a city famous for the large number of fighters that traveled to Iraq and Afghanistan now sends many of it's young men to fight on the front in Libya. Many people describe the lack of freedom, opportunity, and government abuse as pushing the youth toward violent international jihads but now the trend has changed. Young men are either going to fight against Gaddafi or staying in the city in hopes of the future opportunity.
