Thousands still missing in Misurata

Gaddafi forces abducted more 1,200 people during the occupation of Misurata, leaving families to pick up the pieces.



    In Misurata, in western Libya, pro-government soldiers have fought with rebel fighters for over two months. 

    Estimates suggest forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi, the Libyan leader, abducted more than 1,200 people, including entire families, when the city was under siege. What has since happened to the disappeared, remains a mystery.
