At least 1,000 people protesting against the rule of Muammar Gaddafi have taken to the streets of Tripoli, the Libyan capital, raising fears of fresh conflict between anti-government protesters and loyalist forces.
Protests called by the opposition began on Friday when worshippers streamed out of a mosque in the centre of the city, chanting “Gaddaf is the enemy of God”, witnesses said.
“This is the end for Gaddafi. It’s over. Forty years of crimes are over,” Faragha Salim, an engineer at the protest, told the Reuters news agency.
Government forces set up checkpoints in Tripoli, the capital, ahead of the action, and residents said soldiers had been roaming the city in civilians cars.
Some news agencies have also reported a crackdown on foreign journalists, saying security guards have attempted to block their movements. Internet services have also reportedly been disrupted in Tripoli and the eastern city of Benghazi.
