In the heart of the Libyan Sahara is a city known as the ‘pearl of the desert’ – built up around an oasis that has been a refuge for thousands of years.
The Ghadames old city is a UNESCO world heritage site, but is now on the endangered list.
Years of neglect and a lack of government funding are threatening the survival of one of the world's oldest cities.

Al Jazeera’s Malik Traina reports on the struggle to save Ghadames where many buildings are on the verge of collapse.
