Libyan families seek their dead

Thousands of Libyans want to know what happened to their loved ones who never came home from the war.

    Thousands of people are still missing in Libya, almost a year after the uprising there began. Many fighters were buried on the frontline in unmarked mass graves.

    The families of the missing say the new government must do more to help them find their loved ones, including DNA testing to identify bodies.
