BBC News - Libya- Islamist militia bases stormed in Benghazi
Some 30000 people filled a broad boulevard as they marched along a lake in central Benghazi on Friday to the gates of the headquarters of Ansar Al-Shariah. Banners paid tribute to the slain US ambassador, with signs reading "Libya lost a friend" and "We want justice for Stevens." Responding to the report from Benghazi, US Sen. John McCain applauded the citizens' efforts Friday and said it represented the true, freedom-loving Libya that he and other US officials involved in the country knew. "Somewhere Chris Stevens is smiling," the Arizona Republican said. "This is what we knew ... about Libya." Residents of another main eastern city, Darna, have also begun to stand up against Ansar Al-Shariah and other militias.
