Libya unrest: Roadside graves found in Tripoli

The bodies of as many as 20 people have been found in two roadside graves on the eastern outskirts of Tripoli.

People from the area say the remains are those of African mercenaries who had been fighting for Colonel Gaddafi.

Some of Mr Gaddafi's family have fled to Algeria, while several convoys of former loyalists and his son Saadi are said to have gone south to Niger.

Ian Pannell reports from Tripoli.
