Tawerghans seek support for the return home

By Mathieu Galtier.

Tripoli, 1 June 2013:

The decision to return was announced last month by community elders. The Tawerghans want local and international organisations as well as the media to be present on the day, both to cover the event and prevent those opposed to the return, particularly from Misrata, using force to stop them going back.
