Libya ghost town: Residents of Tawergha return home

About 35,000 Tawerghans are living in camps across Libya since rebels captured the town in August 2011.

    Seven years after the start of the Libyan conflict, people from one town are finally able to return home.

    Residents of Tawergha were forced out after being accused of killing rebels who supported the revolution against Muammar Gaddafi.

    Many of their houses were destroyed.

    Al Jazeera’s Mahmoud Abdelwahed reports.
