IRIB Radio: "Libyan fighters demand Jews' expulsion"

Not the world's most reliable source, but interesting:
Libyan revolutionaries have held a protest rally in Libya's second largest city, Benghazi, to demand the expulsion of immigrant Jews from the post-revolutionary North African country.

According to IRNA, the revolutionaries marched in the eastern port city on Friday and condemned the settling of Jews in Libya following the 1967 Zionist regime aggression against some Arab countries.

Meanwhile, other protests and sit-ins were reportedly held elsewhere in the city during which the protesters demanded that the Libyan National Transitional Council (NTC) heed their calls for action.

Benghazi is Libya's second largest city where the revolution against Gaddafi started in February. The city came under opposition control during the early days of the anti-government protests.

The latest protest comes amid reports of attempts by Jewish immigrants to participate in the North African country's future administration.
