Gaddafi still in control in Tripoli as unrest grows

Gaddafi still in control in Tripoli as unrest grows
Text size Aa Aa

A police station in Tobruk is set ablaze by anti-government protesters – scenes of unrest have spread across Libya with the east of the country appearing more and more to be under the control of protesters.

But international condemnation is growing at the reported violence being meted out against demonstrators in Tripoli.

A flag of liberation may have been flown in Benghazi, but elsewhere Gaddafi’s forces are continuing to fight an increasingly bloody battle to keep him in power with shootings and bombings.

The UN Security Council in new York is to meet in closed session to discuss the crisis at the request of Libya’s own disaffected diplomats.
