Jamila Salem had been up since 5 a.m., searching Tripoli on Sunday for her missing son, Adel.
First, she’d visited the military base that rebels now control in central Tripoli where Adel had been a soldier in the Libyan army.
The director of the base’s hospital said he didn’t know if Adel had been among the wounded who’d been treated there.
Next she went to a school nearby where rebels are holding suspected Gadhafi sympathizers. She gave her son’s name and then tearfully waited for word with dozens of other family members who also were searching for missing relatives.
“He disappeared 10 days ago,” she sobbed as she recounted the little she knew.
