Report: Libya deploys troops in Sabratah after protests

The Libyan army has deployed a "large number" of soldiers in Sabratah, west of the capital Tripoli, after protesters destroyed almost all the security services offices, the online Quryna newspaper reported on Tuesday.

 

Located 50 miles (80 km) west of Tripoli, protesters in Sabratah burned down security offices, the criminal investigation and the revolutionary committees buildings. They also tore down all the portraits of leader Muammar Gaddafi, Quryna said quoting its correspondent there. (Reuters)
