Doctor Fears 30,000 Libyans Are Missing

A doctor at a Tripoli hospital has told Sky News she believes as many as 30,000 men are missing after Libya's six month revolution.

Dr Aman Said Hamad said she feared they might never be traced - believing many were now dead.

Relatives of Libya's "disappeared" have begun posting pictures of their loved ones at hospitals. Dr Hamad is co-ordinating efforts to try to trace the men.

Only now, with the fall of Gaddafi, can they hope to try to find them.
