41 killed in protests against regime of Libya’s strongman

At least 41 people have been killed since the outbreak of anti-governmental protests in Libya.

Libya’s strongman, Muammar Gaddafi, faces one of his severest challenges amid protests by thousands in the second city of Benghazi, ITAR-TASS reports.

As Armenian News-NEWS.am reported earlier, clashes between anti-governmental demonstrators and security forces continued overnight with thousands on the streets of the eastern city of Benghazi.

During a “Day of Anger” protests were held in five major cities. The demonstrators protest against Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi’s regime, who has been in power for more than 40 years.
