Libya: Collective punishment against pro-Gaddafi towns

Almost two months after Muammar al-Gaddafi was captured and killed by militiamen from Misrata, the new Libyan government is trying to promote national reconciliation.

Many of the former dictator's fighters have been jailed, and there have been collective punishments against communities that supported him - as happened in the town of Tawargha, south of Misrata.

Caroline Hawley reports from Tawargha.
