3 Killed After Militia Strongholds Stormed in Benghazi

Protesters and military police both involved in the attacks


At least three people have been killed in the Libyan city of Benghazi after military police and protesters took over several militia bases.

The violence followed a day of protests by tens of thousands of citizens demanding an end to the armed groups.

The bases include the HQ of the Islamist group Ansar al-Sharia, suspected of involvement in an attack on the US consulate in the city.

The deaths occurred during a standoff at the base of another group.
