Libya Protests Death Toll on the Increase

The Human Rights Watch says the death toll from four days of violence centred on the Libyan city of Benghazi has passed 100

The Human Rights Watch (HRW) says the death toll from four days of violence centred on the Libyan city of Benghazi has passed 100, after witnesses said security forces shot dozens more anti-government protesters.

The organisation says it raised its death toll from the previous 84 to 104, after at least 20 more people were killed in Benghazi.

The unrest, the worst in Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's four decades in power, started out as a series of protests inspired by popular revolts in neighbouring Egypt and Tunisia but was met by a fierce security crackdown.
