Sirte 'paying price of revolution'

Residents of the birthplace of slain Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi say NTC fighters took revenge on their town.

    Muammar Gaddafi may be dead but people from Sirte, the deposed leader's hometown, say they are paying the price of the revolution.

    The town was under siege for more than a month and some residents are questioning the motives of the National Transition Council that attacked Sirte.

    Homes have been looted and burned, and many believe the NTC fighters took revenge on the town as recompense for damage done by Gaddafi to the cities of Benghazi and Misrata.
