LIBYA: Protesters post videos to substantiate claims

February 21, 2011 |  5:53 pm


Protesters have been relaying and posting videos to substantiate stories of roaming mercenaries and protesters' victory in the eastern city of Benghazi.


In one widely posted and linked-to video, protesters purportedly raise Libya's original flag, which predates longtime leader Moammar Kadafi, over a courthouse in north Benghazi.

Another video claims to show how mercenaries have overwhelmed the AsSahiliya area of Tripoli.
