Euronews spoke to Egyptian journalist, Madeha Emara, who has been in contact with her sources on the ground in Libya.

“The situation is dangerous, she said. “My sources say they are witnessing state sponsored executions. Our sources also tell us that mercenaries from Chad and the Democratic Republic of Congo have been carrying out the killings and firing into the crowds. They also say protesters have been shot at from helicopters. The city of Benghazi is surrounded and they need medical supplies. Scores of people have been wounded and a large number have been killed in cities like Benghazi, Al Beida and Tripoli.”
