February 21, 2011 - 6:50 am
The country’s parliament building is on fire, and 400 are dead in the rioting. The Daily Mail’s detailed reporting has Muammar Gaddafi fleeing Tripoli and his son vowing to fight the protesters “to the last bullet.”
Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi is believed to have fled the capital Tripoli after anti-government demonstrators breached the state television building and set government property alight.
Protesters appear to have gained a foothold in Tripoli as banks and government buildings were looted while demonstrators have claimed they have taken control of the second city Benghazi. …
As Europe and the U.S. condemned the violence, Gaddafi’s son Saif said his family would ‘fight until the last bullet’.
More than 300 victims were massacred – many by foreign mercenaries – during the government crackdown in Libya’s second city, Benghazi.
Protesters were gunned down in the streets, with reports that helicopter gunships and snipers were used to suppress the uprising.
