BENGHAZI, Libya (Reuters) – Pro-government demonstrators stormed the headquarters of the Islamist Ansar al-Sharia militia in the Libyan city of Benghazi on Friday, aiming to evict fighters from the site, Reuters witnesses said.

Ansar al-Sharia has been linked to the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi last week in which the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans died. It denies involvement.

Friday’s action against the group appeared to be part of a coordinated sweep of militia headquarters buildings by police, government troops and activists following a mass public demonstration against militia units earlier in the day.

Chanting “Libya, Libya”, hundreds of demonstrators entered, pulling down militia flags and torching a vehicle inside the compound, the group’s main base in Benghazi.

The crowd waved swords and even a meat cleaver, crying “No more Al Qaeda!” and “The blood we shed for freedom shall not go in vain!”

“After what happened at the American consulate, the people of Benghazi had enough of the extremists,” said demonstrator Hassan Ahmed. “They did not give allegiance to the army. So the people broke in and they fled.”

There was no sign of resistance from the militia at the compound, once the base of forces of former leader Muammar Gaddafi.

“It looks like they (militia fighters) wanted to defuse the situation so they fled,” Ahmed said.

“This place is like the Bastille. This is where Gaddafi controlled Libya from, and then Ansar al-Sharia took it over. This is a turning point for the people of Benghazi.”…. (ByPeter Graff and Suleiman Al-Khalidi)
