Libya's prisoners of war

Al Jazeera gains exclusive access to captured pro-Gaddafi soldiers.

    An unknown number of fighters from the Libyan conflict have been captured - and have effectively become prisoners of war.

    Al Jazeera has been given exclusive access to a temporary detention centre in Zintan, located in the country's western mountains, where opposition fighters are holding some of Gaddafi's men.
