Peaceful protests in Libya

Not only Syria had peaceful protests today, but so did Libya. The protests were either in the city of Tripoli or in the city of Misrata. People were trying to chase out the armed militias that have sort of taken over. But instead, some of the protesters were killed by the armed militias. They interviewed a little boy on a hospital bed: "we came peaceful, they came with weapons." Lots of others were in the hospital as well, including some bodies:
