Few Libyan families untouched by tragedy

Ali Bufanas lost all his children in Libya's violence, but such suffering is common across the country.

    For Misrata resident Ali Bufanas, photographs are all that remain of his four young children who were killed in March when an explosion hit the family's vehicle.

    What happened to Ali affected his whole community, but his story is not unusual in Libya.

    Hardly any residents of areas hit by the months of violence were untouched by tragedy
