The Australian government is providing a loan to help ease the plight of Libyan students in Australia.
As the Gaddafi regime has crumbled in recent weeks, hundreds of Libyan students in Australia have been watching with mixed emotions.

There’s some hope now that those difficulties will be alleviated by a decision by the Australian government to support them. Ruth Eisenreich reports.
