Image on page A10, it shows a tank in Zawiyah, surrounded by anti-regime protestors and its crew who deserted the military to join the opposition on Sunday, February 27, 2011 during the Libyan Civil War. Amid the sea of protestors, we see a few on the tank in green uniform who very likely are the deserters, but the one pointing his finger high up is obscure. He might be a militiaman from the opposition, or a soldier who deserted long before this date, giving a signal to the protestors on something happening on the far left, perhaps combat, surrender or occupation. However, he does not get much attention from the people and has merged into the crowd of celebration.
