Justin Marozzi at BBC News: Psychological scars of war take toll in Misrata

The Libyan city of Misrata, scene of the bloodiest fighting during the revolution that toppled Colonel Gaddafi last year, is facing an acute crisis of psychiatric care for former fighters traumatised by the conflict and frustrated by the aftermath.

The battle of Misrata became known as Libya’s Stalingrad.

In the three months the city was under siege, Misratans say 2,000 died and 14,000 were wounded.
