February 18, 2011


Anti-government protesters have seized control of al Bayda city, Libya, after some police joined them, Reuters reported Feb. 18, citing two Libyan exile groups. The Libyan Human Rights Solidarity and the Libyan Committee for Truth and Justice later said government militias were now attempting to retake the city, and protesters were fighting with any weapons available. The reports, which the groups based on telephone contact with the city, could not be independently verified.
