Libyan woman who alleged rape still missing

Family says security forces targeted her after she protested against the government.

    Eman Al Obeidi, the Libyan woman who burst into a Tripoli hotel claiming to have been raped by troops loyal to Muammar Gaddafi, is still missing.

    Officials tried to silence her in the immediate aftermath of the incident, later distributing statements that she was "drunk" and "mentally ill".

    However, Obeidi's family has spoken out, saying she was targeted by security forces after she participated in anti-government protests.
