Residents say troops defect in Libya’s Benghazi
* Benghazi men says security forces withdraw from streets * Witnesses say snipers using high-velocity rounds * Stop the massacre now! say Muslim leaders (Updates with fresh witness accounts)
hope this is true and persists. when they come to the realization that they’re firing on their brothers in support of a tyrant, how can they not defect? he has to bring in mercenaries, and the people will defeat them too – because no army can stop an idea whose time has come.
also, one of Libya’s ambassadors has resigned “because he cannot be part of a regime that kills innocent people”. pray for Libya.
