Tripoli, 19 November 2013:
Hundreds of women turned out in Algeria Square yesterday to protest against the presence of armed . . .[restrict]militias in Tripoli streets and across the country.
They called for a complete end to the country’s militias and demanded that the security of the country be placed solely in control of the national Armed Forces and the police.
The crowd included a small group of Libyan women who live and study in Manchester in the UK. They had returned to Libya to express their condolences for the country’s losses in the recent Tripoli clashes. They also plan to conduct some research into why things in Libya have not been working post-Revolution. [/restrict]
