Libya Tripoli Protest

Under one flag these protestors sing chants against the militias involved in the current conflict, primarily those from ZIntan who have controled Tripoli's airport since 2011, and those from Misurata who re-entered the city three weeks ago. The recent battles have destroyed Tripoli airport, set fire to fuel tanks containing millions of litres of petrol (at the main Tripoli storage depot) and destroyed residential areas. Hundreds of civilians have been killed and injured in the fighting. Many Tripoli residents question the motives of the warring sides and the claims by the Misurata militias that the purpose of their operation was to 'liberate' and 'protect' the captial.
