Thousands of Libyans remain missing

Families say NTC doing little to find estimated 10,000 people who disappeared during the uprising.



    In early October, Libya's National Transitional Council set up a commission to help locate those who went missing during the eight-month uprising against Muammar Gaddafi's rule.

    Families of the missing however say the NTC has done little in the search for the estimated 10,000 people.

    Lack of a logistical framework - national databases of the disappeared, outreach to families, search teams, or DNA sampling - makes the search all the more difficult.

    Some families have turned to passing out flyers and NGOs have been setup to help register the missing, but they lack the financial resources and official status needed to gain access to military council records.
