Tripoli [Libya], Dec 27 (ANI): The Libyan families, who were displaced in 2011 after the toppling of former Prime Minister Muammar Gaddafi, from a plundered town of Tawergha, east of Misrata will be allowed to return home in February, confirmed the UN- backed government.

The deal, if implemented, would be a step towards reconciliation in Libya.
Confirming the deal, a spokesman for the Misrata city council, stated that it was the government's call to implement it.(ANI)
