Summary Dateline gets rare access to see what life is really like in Libya after Gaddafi, as heavily armed rebels remain largely in control of a country in chaos; Fairtrade products are increasingly popular with shoppers, so Dateline traces the producers to ask if they're getting a fair deal and: women are kidnapped off the street in Kyrgyzstan and forced to marry, but why is it seen as an acceptable ancient tradition?LAWLESS LIBYAGaddafi may have gone from Libya amid scenes of celebration, but what's left behind is a country in chaos. Heavily armed rebels still control much of the country, with towns in ruins, infrastructure destroyed and a justice system struggling to get back on track. Dateline's Yaara Bou Melhem gets rare access to the prisons where thousands of people, perceived to have sided with the former regime, are being held indefinitely without charge.She also visits the country's sprawling refugee camps to document stories of torture and abuse. Elections take place in June, amid new tension over a split between the country's east and west, so what does the future hold for Libya?FAIR TRADE?Fairtrade is a buzzword of the western world... shoppers snap up products they see as giving farmers in the developing world a fair go, but how ethical are they really? Tuesday's Dateline traces back the coffee and flowers on sale in Europe to the small producers of South America and Africa. There's no doubt the trade is providing employment in poor rural areas, but are the workers getting a fair deal from it? And do the retailers benefiting from the popularity of Fairtrade really know what's happening at the other end of chain?BRIDE SNATCHERSArranged marriage has long caused controversy, but it doesn't come more extreme than brides being kidnapped off the street and forced to marry men they've never met. It's a reality in Kyrgyzstan, where kidnapping brides is seen by many as a perfectly acceptable ancient tradition, and despite being illegal, it goes largely ignored by the authorities. Tuesday's Dateline witnesses the distressing scene as a bride is abducted and forced into marriage, while seemingly unconcerned family gather round for a lavish celebration. But Kyrgyzstan also has a high level of abusive marriages and female suicides linked to this controversial practice, so why is it still so popular in this part of Asia?
