Libya Crisis: Thousands seek shelter near Tripoli

As fighting gets closer to city centre, number of displaced people is expected to rise.

    Nearly 130,000 people have been displaced by fighting near the Libyan capital.

    The eight-month-long battle for control of Tripoli has created a housing crisis.

    Some displaced families are demanding the government provide compensation for their destroyed homes.
