Libyan families ask NTC for compensation

National Council has promised to look after victims' families, but security remains top priority.

     

    Many Libyans lost their lives fighting against toppled leader Muammar Gaddafi's forces during the conflict.

    Now their bereaved families are calling for the National Transitional Council (NTC) to give them compensation including monthly salaries.

    The NTC has promised to look after the victims' families, but that may take some time, as the state's unfrozen funds are yet to trickle in, and security remains a top priority.
