Libyans try to reclaim seized property

Victims of Gaddafi's law number four seek justice for seizures made during deposed leader's rule.

    Libyans try to take back millions in property that they say was taken from them under Muammar Gaddafi's law number four.

    The law, originating in the deposed leader's Green Book allowed for property to be seized by Gaddafi supporters in a moment's notice.

    Now, the victims of the law are seeking justice for land that they say is rightfully theirs.
