Saved from Gaddafi's torturers - by a simple gesture of kindness

Former captive tells of the 'horror movie' violence meted by Libyan soldiers, and how he came to escape a similar fate

"When Ali Mufta draped his blanket around the shoulders of a pair of terrified teenage brothers, he thought of it as little more than a touch of kindness in the midst of a situation he describes as "a horror movie". But it was a gesture that saved him from the fate of other prisoners crammed into an underground cell in Sirte, the birthplace of the Libyan dictator, Muammar Gaddafi"
