Libyan Families Displaced In 2011 Uprising To Return Home



Tawergha was used as a staging ground for attacks on Misrata during the uprising that eventually toppled and killed longtime dictator Muammar Gaddafi. Anti-Gaddafi militia, mainly from Misrata, drove out Tawergha’s residents, believing its inhabitants had aided Gadhafi’s forces.

Tawergha’s residents have since been living in camps across Libya.
