NBC’s Richard Engel Nearly Shelled in Libya

On “NBC Nightly News” last night, the program led off with a report from Richard Engel in Libya. Engel met up with a group of rebels near the town of Ajdabiya.

Engel spoke to a man who was armed only with a plastic gun, with Libyan artillery landed maybe 50 yards away from their location, and it was caught on camera:
