Libya: Commanders Should Face Justice for Killings | Human Rights Watch
Amazing heroism in pursuit of freedom. I wonder why more Americans don't seem to be paying attention.Human Rights Watch interviewed one protester by Skype on the evening of February 21 who described what he saw:
The hospitals in Tripoli ran out of the blood yesterday evening. At the beginning of the protest a Land Cruiser drove past firing at people in front of it randomly. I can hear the sound of gunfire and large explosions. We saw loads of Land Cruisers full of masked men in military uniforms and heavy machine guns heading to where the huge protests are downtown. Men wearing civilian clothing in the square were shooting at us. We heard later that Abu Salim hospital was broken into. I saw guys taking off their shirts and exposing their chests to the snipers. I've never seen anything like it, I was very ashamed to hide under a tree but I am human.
