Black Libyans fear for their lives

Former supporters of Muammar Gaddafi "vanish" from town of Tawergha after fall of former leader's government.

    Libya is home to a large minority of black Libyans, many of whom supported Muammar Gaddafi, the former leader, and some who fought on his side against the rebel uprising.

    But since Gaddafi's government was ousted from power, entire communities of black Libyans have disappeared without a clear reason, leaving virtual ghost towns behind.

    Al Jazeera's Anita McNaught reports from one such town, Tawergha, where remaining members of the community fear for their lives.
