A group of anti-government Libyans staged a demonstration in front of the Turkish consulate in Benghazi, protesting Turkish authorities for rejecting the idea of arming rebels fighting against Col. Muammar Gaddafi and maintaining dialogue with the Libyan leader, Cihan news agency reported.
In a peaceful protest largely composed of women and children on Monday, demonstrators chanted slogans, urging Turkish leadership to look at the atrocities committed by forces loyal to Gaddafi in rebel-held city of Misrata in the past week. "Erdoğan don't be blithe, look at Misrata," "Revolutionaries want to arm," "Erdoğan, don't talk to Gaddafi" were some slogans protesters chanted during the demonstration.
There were also some lawyers and prosecutors among the nearly 150-person group in a 30-minute protest, witnesses say. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan rejected the idea of arming rebels last week during his visit to London for a meeting with British Prime Minister David Cameron.
