Tripoli, 14 November 2013:
The head of Tripoli Local Council, Sadat Elbadri, has called upon the capital’s residents to peacefully demonstrate against . . .[restrict]armed militias after Friday prayers tomorrow.
Speaking live on television, Elbadri demanded the immediate implementation of Law No. 27, which ordered the removal of all armed groups from the capital earlier this year. Tripoli locals have been organising similar protests for several days.
The move comes after last Thursday night’s armed clashes in Tripoli that left two dead and 29 injured.
Speaking to the Libya Herald last week, Elbadri said that he had been assured of support from other towns and cities as well as Tripoli-based activists. [/restrict]
