Libyans protest Bani Walid gunfight

Hundreds of protesters accuse the government of killing civilians.

    Protesters in the Libyan capital Tripoli accuse the government of killing civilians, as at least 30 people are reported to have been killed in the town of Bani Walid.

    Government-backed forces say they are battling elements who are still loyal to the former leader Muammar Gaddafi.

    The fighting has been going on for nearly a week.
