Two months after the dominant military force in eastern Libya declared victory in a campaign to retake Benghazi, Hassan al-Zawy is living rough in his home in the district that witnessed the city's last major battle. Like many other residents, he ventured back as Khalifa Haftar's Libyan National Army gradually wrested back control from Islamist militants and other rebel groups.A conflict that developed after strongman Moammar Gadhafi was toppled in an uprising six years ago has yet to be resolved. Benghazi, where the 2011 revolution started, has seen some of the worst violence. Tens of thousands of residents, many opposed to Haftar, were displaced to other Libyan cities.In Benghazi, the conflict has also had left deep physical and psychological scars.
