Ethnic Africans who were forced to flee their homes during Libya's 2011 civil war have had their plans to return home thwarted. The people of Tawergha sided with Gadaffi's regime during the fighting and afterwards were displaced by fighters from neighbouring Misrata. 30,000 are now refugees in their own country as a result. Andrew Hosken was in Libya ready to report on the homecoming that never was.

Portugal has been out on strike - but what went wrong for those who believe they did everything right? Marie Keyworth hears from the Portuguese struggling to make ends meet as the long recession continues.
