Libyas Lions and other animal victims of war

As Libya rebuilds after its devastating conflict, stories are beginning to emerge about the suffering of not just human, but animal as well.

Tripoli’s main zoo has been shut down for 10 months, since the revolution began, putting rare and exotic creatures, including a liger, at risk of fatal starvation.

Al Jazeera’s Imran Khan reports from the Tripoli zoo, where a zookeeper says it was his duty to help protect the animals, “a national treasure”, despite the dangers.
