Tripoli: A Libyan hospital official says seven protesters have been killed when militiamen opened fire on peaceful protesters demanding the removal of armed groups in the capital.
The official at Tripoli`s Emergency Hospital says at least 30 were wounded in today`s violence. The official, who compiled the casualties list at the hospital, spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to talk to the press.
The attack came when thousands marched from a Tripoli mosque to the headquarters of a militia, demanding it and other militias be disbanded. Footage aired on the privately owned al-Nabaa television network showed protesters running from gunfire while carrying others covered in blood.
