LIBYA:Protesters block Tunisian jet in Tripoli
Laaska news Nov. 27,2011
About a hundred armed people in a dozen cars drove out onto the tarmac at Tripoli’s Mitiga airport and blocked a Tunisair Airbus 300-20 jet with passengers from moving, Reuters reports.
The protesters from the Souq al-Juma district of Tripoli, a stronghold of anti-Gaddafi sentiment, want the government to investigate last week’s shootout in which seven members of the Souq al-Juma militia were killed.
The clash happened in Bani Walid, a town southeast of the capital and one of the last places to submit to the new Libyan leadership.
