Reports coming in from Libya's capital city Tripoli, are saying that, mercenaries working for Gaddafi have taken over ambulances and are killing the injured to cover up the fact of the atrocities that are happening after Friday prayer in the region.

Many video's are being uploaded to youtube and facebook of indiscriminate shootings of people in the streets when they are leaving prayer. Link.

The protesters have renamed Green Square in Tripoli to Martyrs Square, where it has been reported that up to 30,000 protesters are descending. However Gadaffi says that everything is peaceful and normal.

The protesters continue to protest, some have been seen to take off their shirts walking down the street with their arms in the air, despite sniper fire all around, They bring a whole new meaning to the word martyr, their actions are very humbling.

The death toll since violence began remains unclear, though on Thursday Francois Zimeray, France's top human rights official, said it could be as high as 2,000 people killed.

"Friday prayer in Benghazi have seen thousands and thousands on the streets. All the banners are for the benefit of the capital, [they are saying] 'We're with you, Tripoli.'" Al jazeera’s Laurence Lee reported.
