Libyans talk of past abuses

The fate of Flight 1103 remained shrouded in mystery but now that silence is being broken.

    Libyan Arab Airlines Flight 1103 was a Boeing 727 with 10 crew and 147 passengers onboard that was involved in a mid-air collision on 22 December 1992.

    Now, 19 years on the people of Libya are using the opportunity of an expected regime change to talk about the unexplained crash which has been shrouded in mystery.

    For years Libyans were not allowed to talk about it.

    But as Al Jazeera's Tony Birtley reports, the uprising is starting to change that.
