Libya: Reunited after 43 years of exile


On the occasion of the launch of its new restoring family links website, the ICRC presents the story of a Libyan refugee in Switzerland reunited with his family after 43 years of separation. Through a Red Cross message written by the family in Libya and transmitted by the ICRC Benghazi office, the Swiss Red Cross was able to locate Mr Al-Naji. The newly established website familylinks.icrc.org will now facilitate the efforts of the Red Cross Red Crescent to restore contact between family members.
