Libyan lawyers build case against Gaddafi

Documents uncovered that show "security forces were told to starve" population of Misurata.

    Lawyers in the Libyan city of Misurata are attempting to build a case against the government of Muammar Gaddafi for war crimes and crimes against humanity.

    They have already uncovered documents that reportedly show security forces were told to starve the population of the city and target mosques.

    Mobile phone footage of security forces shelling a minaret appears to corroborate that evidence.
