# Libya’s puppet prime minister, former CIA agent Zeidan; has demanded that all armed militias leave Tripoli "without exception," after clashes between militiamen and armed residents left dozens dead and almost 500 wounded. At least 50 people were reportedly killed in Friday’s street fighting, one of the worst in the Libyan capital since the overthrow of former leader, Muammar Gaddafi.
The puppet Libyan Justice Minister declared three days of mourning following the bloodshed, according to the country’s state news agency LANA. "The existence of weapons outside the army and police is dangerous," Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan said in a speech delivered shortly after the clashes. "All armed militias need to leave Tripoli, without exception." (sic) "The demonstration was peaceful and had been permitted by the interior ministry, and then the protesters were fired on when they entered the Gharghur district" where the militia's headquarters are located, puppet Prime Minister Ali Zeidan said in an exclusive interview with Reuters TV and the Libyan television channel Ahrar.
The Misrata militia – created in 2011 by the French generals of NATO following orders of Sarkozy and propositions of Zionidst lobbyist BHL – reportedly opened fire with heavy machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades at protesters as they approached its Tripoli katiba headquarters in the Gharghour district.
Thousands of protesters gathered in the Libyan capital, calling to intensify the security presence and end the militias’ rule established in 2011, after the Western leaded uprising that ousted leader Muammar Gaddafi.
The protesters marched from a downtown mosque to the headquarters of the militia waving Libyan flags and chanting slogans such as "We want an army, we want police." According to a Reuters report, the militia fired an anti-aircraft cannon into the crowd, after which the protesters first fled but then returned heavily armed. The report added that the demonstrators stormed the gated building, and kept the militiamen there until nightfall. According to reports, the HQ was torched and other buildings in the district belonging to the Misrata militia were raided by demonstrators.
The rally was sparked by a string of recent street clashes in which the militia from the city of Misrata, which has a heavy presence in the capital, also played a central role. The violence was also triggered by the killing of one of the Radical islamist Misrata group's commanders.
