The Libyan woman who said she was raped by pro-Gadafi forces is talking to AC360°. Tonight you'll hear from Eman al-Obeidy, a remarkably brave woman.
The world got to know al-Obeidy on March 26 when she burst into a Tripoli hotel full of foreign journalists and told them she was gang raped and tormented by Gadhafi forces. Her emotional story led to a tense showdown. The journalists tried to get her story, while hotel workers revealed they were government agents and verbally assaulted her and other government officials eventually dragged her away.
Tonight she shares what she's faced these past 10 days. It's a frightening story and one we feel must be told.
She has a message for the United States and the rest of the world about her country.
"We are a peaceful people. And we are not members of al Qaeda. We are simple people and moderate Muslims," al-Obeidy told Anderson by telephone.
"We are not asking for anything, but our freedom and our dignity," she added.
The Libyan government has twiced claimed al-Obeidy was released to her family. Twice the family said they were lying. We're Keeping Them Honest.
We're also following developments on the battle for control of Libya. The envoy sent by Gadhafi to Britain is peddling the idea that one of the embattled leader's sons could become his successor, a source close to the talks tells CNN.
Under the proposal, Saif al-Islam, 38, would take control of Libya, the source said.
We'll talk it over with CNN's Nic Robertson in Tripoli.
We'll also update you on Japan's nuclear crisis. Workers at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant are dumping about 11,500 tons of radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean in an effort to stop a leak.
A Japanese government official called the move "unavoidable."
11,500 tons is about 3 million gallons of water.
We'll get details on this effort from Michael Friedlander, a former senior nuclear power plant operator.
We also have an update on that dog that was found alive on Friday in rubble floating at sea for three weeks.
