A new accord has been struck for thousands of displaced Libyans to return home to a town that sided with former leader Moammar Gadhafi in the 2011 revolution, the country's unity government said Monday.The reconciliation deal was signed late Sunday by representatives of the pro-Gadhafi town of Tawergha and nearby Misrata, 240 kilometers southeast of the Libyan capital Tripoli.The 35,000 residents of Tawergha, a town which sided with Gadhafi right up to his fall, were evicted after his overthrow and have since been kept in refugee camps on the outskirts of Tripoli or scattered across Libya.
