Rival NTC Factions Shooting Each Other During Autonomous Benghazi Demonstration
 Part of channel(s): 2011 Libyan civil war (current event), C-A-T-000p (promoted)

Libyan armed factions turn their guns on each other during a demonstration for autonomy of the eastern region. The leadership of the NTC replied that it will put down such demands with force. Here the armed factions allied with the leadership of Abdul Jalil shoot at the demonstration, reportedly there were injuries due to the use of live bullets. The supporters of autonomy also being armed and part of the NTC shot back at their friends.



Libya was the most prosperous African nation while ruled by Muamar Gaddafi, although he was responsible for nepotism and corruption he certainly saw his country develop. It is hard to argue, without lying, that Libya has become anything more than a shithole after the overthrow of the dictator.

  • Isn't it almost always like this in black and Muslim nations?

    There's a civil war to 'liberate' a country from an oppressive dictator/government and once they fall, the rebels who did the overthrowing end up fighting each other for power because they're too stupid and greedy to put their country's interests first. Then eventually one group might take power, but the other factions remain unhappy that they aren't in control and so instead of gaining power by peaceful means, they start yet anothe More..

    • @John_Matrix Bad example..most of the muslim nations have been ruled by us supported and/or us installed dictators. Iran for example had a democracy that the US overthrew in 1953 when we installed the Shah.

  • Rubbish..with their small population and oil wealth they should have lived much better than they were..it should have been like the UAE. The fact that it was one the more prosperous nations in africa is not suprising considering the nations wealth...and no thanks to Ghaddafi..just that some of the money managed to trickle down and not end up the pockets of his cronies and the other dictators of africa which he would fund. These are growing pains, give it a few years. History books are sanitiz More..

  • you've got to be kidding me, Libya under Roman rule thousands of years ago was more advanced than the libya of today full of backwards arab muslims, they have whole cities there built by the romans that are more pristine and beautiful than the slums that most arab libyans reside in. The city of Leptis magna is the only reason that anybody would even consider visiting libya, how pathetic is that, what a shitty culture

    • @golem Take a look at pictures of the libyan cities and streets before Ghaddafi took over, they were clean and well maintained. Most of the cities in the east haven't had any new infrastructure built in 40 years.
