A year ago, as Tripoli was under heavy fighting, Ossama Al Haloj's father disappeared. Ossama and his family searched everywhere to find out what happened to their father: "We found this picture on Youtube showing three dead bodies. That's him (my father). He is wearing the same clothes he was wearing when he left home."
Around the same time that Ossama's father was killed, a suspected mass grave was at last accessible where over 1,200 prisoners disappeared in Abu Salim prison in 1996. Soumaya and Awatif suspect their three brothers were among those killed.
