The BBC is reporting that “hundreds” of people clashed with police and pro-government supporters in the Libyan city of Benghazi, amid ongoing unrest in the region.

Demonstrators chanting slogans against the “corrupt rulers of the country” were attacked by police firing tear gas who violently dispersed the protesters, according to Al Jazeera sources. An online edition of a privately-published Libyan newspaper said that 13 people were injured.
