Benghazi autonomy demonstrators attacked

Saturday, March 17, 2012

Unidentified armed men attacked demonstrators in the Libyan city of Benghazi on Friday during demonstrations in support of granting autonomy to the eastern region of the country.
“One person was killed and at least five injured,” said a representative of the local health services.

In addition, a building belonging to a local TV channel “Libya al-Ahrar” was also attacked so that its correspondents could not cover pro-autonomy demonstrations.
