Libyans build memorial for martyrs

Young activists putting up wall to display names and faces of those who died to free country.

    As Libyans in Tripoli celebrate the defeat of Muammar Gaddafi, a young activist group is putting up a memorial wall to display the names and faces of fellow Libyans who have died.

    While no one knows how many people were killed in the months-long battle for a free Libya, it is believed to be thousands.

    These activists want those that died to be remembered.
