It appears brutal measures taken by Libyan authorities to quell the anti-government protests may not be completely successful. Protests have spread to more than a half-dozen cities, including Tripoli, the capital. Benghazi, where as many as two hundred are said to have died, has been at the centre of unrest. Meanwhile, Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi’s son, Seif al-Islam, warned in a televised address that the strife could lead to civil war. He also spoke of possible concessions to demands for reform.
