The United States said Wednesday it encouraged Libya, like countries throughout the Middle East and North Africa, to take steps to meet the hopes and needs of their people.

"Countries across the region have the same kind of challenge in terms of the demographics, the aspirations of their people, the need for reform," State Department Philip Crowley told reporters.

"And we encourage these countries to take specific actions that address the aspirations and the needs and hopes of their people. Libya certainly would be in that same category," he added.

Dozens of people were hurt Wednesday in clashes in Benghazi, Libya's second city and an opposition stronghold, on the eve of a nationwide "Day of Anger" called by cyber-activists to emulate revolts in neighboring Egypt and Tunisia.

Crowley balked when asked whether he would call Libya's leader, Colonel Moamer Kadhafi, a dictator, saying: "I don't think he came to office through a democratic process."

Libyan protesters killed by snipers


An unconfirmed number of people were killed and scores wounded as anti-government protesters declared a Day of Rage in Libya, officials said.

The Human Rights Solidarity based in Geneva, Switzerland, quoted witnesses in Libya saying as many as 13 protesters had been killed by rooftop snipers and scores injured in clashes with security forces on Thursday.

The Libya al-Youm Web site said four protesters were killed by live ammunition in demonstrations in al- Beyida, west of Benghazi.

The New York Times said one protester was killed, quoting the Human Rights Watch organization as its source.

Re: BREAKING LIBYA PROTESTS
'Day of rage' kicks off in Libya

Protesters have reportedly taken to the streets in four cities despite a crackdown, heeding to calls for mass protests

Protesters in Libya have defied a security crackdown and taken to the streets in four cities for a "day of rage," inspired by uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia, reports say.

Several hundred supporters of Muammar Gaddafi, the country's longtime leader, have also reportedly gathered in the capital on Thursday to counter online calls for anti-government protests.

New York-based Human Rights Watch said that Libyan authorities had detained 14 activists, writers and protesters who had been preparing the anti-government protests.

Libya has been tightly controlled for over 40 years by Gaddafi, who is now Africa's longest-serving leader.

According to reports on Twitter, the microblogging site, Libya's regime had been sending text messages to people warning them that live bullets will be fired if they join today's protests.

Thursday is the anniversary of clashes that took place on February 17, 2006, in the country's second largest city of Benghazi when security forces killed several protesters who were attacking the city's Italian consulate.

Re: BREAKING LIBYA PROTESTS
As ‘day of rage' tests Gadhafi, Libya's future rests in military's hands

The Arab uprising sweeping across North Africa will meet its most unpredictable challenge on Thursday as Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi faces the first major anti-regime protest in his country’s recent history.

The way Mr. Gadhafi responds Thursday to the “day of rage,” organized largely on Facebook, could determine the future of his distinctively personal style of socialist, oil-funded authoritarianism. Libyans have very high rates of computer ownership by North African standards, and until recently had fairly free access to the Internet. But Mr. Gadhafi has aggressively imprisoned, tortured or killed most anti-regime opposition figures, whether democratic or Islamist

LIBYA: Videos show violent and chaotic scenes at protests- activists call for "Day of Rage"

Videos are trickling in from the anti-government protests that were ramping up to a "Day of Rage" Thursday in Libya. Demonstrations a day earlier reportedly resulted in the death of at least one person and more than a dozen injuries when security forces clashed with protesters.

The amateur footage above claims to show a fire truck menacing demonstrators in the city of Benghazi in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

According to US-based rights group Human Rights Watch (HRW), 14 people were arrested ahead of the planned protests Thursday and media reports said hundreds of supporters of Libyan leader Moammar Kadafi had taken to the streets of the Libyan capital in a bid to counteract activist calls for an anti-government rally. The Libyan opposition site "Enough Ghaddafi" appears to have been hacked and is currently inaccessible.

Below, more amateur video footage purportedly shows a demonstration outside a police station in Libya on Tuesday. As crowds appear to try to approach the station, shots are fired and tumult break out.
