Thousands still missing in Libya

It is five months since Colonel Gaddafi was killed and the war in Libya formally came to to an end.

The BBC has learnt that there could be as many as 8,000 people still missing from both sides of the conflict.

There are fears that many may never be identified or their bodies returned to grieving families because mass graves are being exhumed without proper procedures and, until now, no one has taken overall responsibility for it.

Wyre Davies reports from just outside Tripoli where he hears from a father whose five sons have been missing since the conflict.
