Libyan protesters defy crackdown

Gaddaffi loyalists flood state TV - but online videos show a very different scene.

    Despite state-organised rallies in support of Muammar Gaddaffi, thousands of pro-democracy protesters defy a security crackdown to demand an end to his 42-year rule.

    Videos posted online claim to show demonstrators setting fire to the police headquarters in the eastern city of Benghazi. 

    Al Jazeera speaks to a witness who describes seeing protesters shot dead by Gaddaffi loyalists.
