LIBYA: Troops clash with protesters in Tripoli
Troops loyal to Libyan leader Moammar Kadafi fired tear gas and live ammunition into a crowd of protesters marching in Tripoli Friday, the Associated Press reported.
More than 1,500 protesters marched from a mosque in the Tajoura district of the Libyan capital after midday prayers, chanting for the end of Kadafi's regime and waving the red, black and green flag of the monarchy, which he replaced on seizing power in 1969, AP reported.
