Re: BREAKING LIBYA PROTESTS
My gut feeling is that the most important protests now taking place in North Africa are those in Libya. I say this with no disrespect to those in Algeria, where the regime certainly deserves to be brought down, or my own native Morocco, where the palace and Makhzen need a wake-up call that the status quo (and indeed, the regression of the last few years) is not acceptable.

But Libya shares something important with Egypt and Tunisia: an aging leader (41 years in power) faces a looming succession crisis in which the leading candidates are his own sons. I simply don't think that's an acceptable outcome for any republic in the 21st century, and was a key aspect to the revolt against Hosni Mubarak in Egypt, and to a lesser extent in Tunisia (with the rumored heir apparent being his nephew).

Re: BREAKING LIBYA PROTESTS
Reports of deaths and injuries surface in spreading Libyan protests

Messages and videos posted on social media sites Thursday signaled that anti-government protests in Libya were gathering steam in several cities, with some turning violent on a "Day of Rage."

There were reports of at least 10 deaths, but those reports could not be independently confirmed.

A text message sent out on mobile phones challenged younger Libyans to take to the streets, activists and bloggers said.

Deaths Reported in Libya Protests

"Today the Libyans broke the barrier or fear, it is a new dawn," the AP quoted opposition leader Faiz Jibril as saying.
Abdulmajeed Eldursi, a Libyan government spokesman, said Thursday that while he had seen reports of deaths related to the violent crackdown, he couldn't confirm them. He denied that government security forces were using violence against the demonstrators.
"There is no use of violence [by the authorities] or anything that is not justified," he said, the Journal reports. "When there is a crowd, the security will try to disperse them but there is no excessive use of violence at all."

Re: BREAKING LIBYA PROTESTS
This is the lead story on the Haretz website:

At least 14 anti-government protesters reported dead in Libya

Demonstrators take to the streets against Gadhafi in Day of Rage, sparring with loyalists counter protests; accurate casualty reports hard to come by due to media blackouts.

......

The Libyan government maintains tight control over the media and the reports couldn't be independently confirmed. Late on Wednesday evening, it was impossible to contact witnesses in Benghazi because telephone connections to the city appeared to be out of order.

Gadhafi was quoted as saying on Wednesday that "revolutionaries" would prevail, although he did not mention the unrest. "Down with the enemies, down with them everywhere," the BBC quoted Gadhafi as saying. "The puppets of the USA, the puppets of Zionism are falling."

Though some Libyans complain about unemployment, inequality and limits on political freedoms, analysts say an Egypt-style revolt is unlikely because the government can use oil revenues to smooth over most social problems.

Libya accounts for about 2 percent of the world's crude exports. Companies including Shell, BP and Eni have invested billions of dollars in tapping its oil fields, home to the largest proven reserves in Africa.
