Thousands of Bangladeshi workers stranded in Libya

Tens of thousands of Bangladeshi workers are currently stranded in Libya, many in conflict-zones, leaving family members thousand of miles away concerned for their safety.

The BBC's Anbarasan Ethirajan went to one village near the Bangladeshi town of Rajbari where he met a family whose main breadwinner has been stranded in Ben Jawad, a Libyan town that has been the scene of intense fighting.
