Libya's Tawergha IDPs: 'We live in very difficult conditions'

Left stranded in a desert camp six years after being forced from their homes, Tawergha remains a ghost town but for those determined to return, it is still home.

    Hundreds of Libyans forced to leave their home town of Tawergha during the civil war are stranded in the desert.

    A deal to allow their return now looks doubtful.

    Libya's internationally recognised government in Tripoli negotiated the return of the families, but that is now looking in doubt.

    Al Jazeera's Barbara Angopa reports.
