Syrians seek refuge in post-revolution Libya

More than 6,000 forced to flee unrest in their own country struggle to find a new home.

    More than 6,000 Syrians escaping the violence at home have fled to Libya.

    They are discovering how difficult it is to settle into a country struggling to fulfil the promise of its own revolution.
