    With Muammar Gaddafi on the run, many political prisoners who opposed him have been set free by Libyan rebel forces and are returning home.

    At least 107 political prisoners held in the Abu Salim prison have returned home to the eastern city of Benghazi.

    Many families are scanning lists of those freed from prison, anxiously looking for the names of their loved ones.
