Benghazi, LIBYA

21 year old Muath Ben Omran holds a picture of his murdered father Tawfiq in front of what used to be the family home. This was the last place Muath saw his father before he was arrested by Internal security officers in Benghazi in June 1995. Tawfiq was sent to Abu Salim prision in Tripoli where he was murdered the following year when over 1200 inmates were gunned down for apparently starting a revolt. Tawfiq's family were led to believe that he was still alive until in 2008 when finally they received a death certificate and given a large sum of money to stay quiet.
