BENGHAZI, Libya - More than 400 people have gone missing in east Libya since the uprising against Muammar Gaddafi began six weeks ago, many feared killed or captured by government forces, human rights officials say.

Relatives have stuck posters on the walls of hospital lobbies with photos of missing young men and telephone numbers to call with any information.

More than 120 posters adorned the walls and entrance gate of the hospital. At least four showed men in military uniform.

Human rights workers say the numbers also include four Libyan doctors and three journalists. But most are unemployed young men who flocked to the rebel volunteer army as fighters or supporters.

Others have been reported as seized by Gaddafi's security forces.
