Libya Protests Enter 5th Day (Video)
Libya Protests Continue in the Face of Deadly Force
Anti-government protests in Libya are in their fifth day, even as Human Rights Watch says that at least 24 demonstrators have been killed by government forces.
Foreign media is not welcome in Libya, and the government has been restricting access to Internet and mobile networks. Protestors are turning out in the thousands, calling for Muammar Gaddafi to step down after 42 years in power.
Libyan state television is showing footage of only pro-government demonstrations, claiming that the footage is live. Benghazi has been the epicenter of the Libya protests so far, but clashes between demonstrators and government forces have broken out across the country.
Mohamed el-Berqawy, an engineer in Benghazi, told Al Jazeera that the city was the scene of a "massacre," and that four demonstrators had been killed on Friday.
"Where is the United Nations ... where is (US president Barack) Obama, where is the rest of the world, people are dying on the streets," he said. "We are ready to die for our country."
