Protests continue in various cities of Libya

Popular protests in various cities and regions of Libya continue for the second consecutive day but with less intensity.

In Misrata, the demonstrators closed the town hall while roadblocks have appeared in Tripoli in the areas of Swani Bani Adam and Ghout Al Shaal, west of the capital.

The Baltris youth movement, one of groups behind organizing the demonstrations, said in a statement that it will raise the demand ceiling and continue to mobilize people in all cities and streets of Libya.

Baltris leaders met with members of the Libyan Presidential Council, stressing that the tripartite body does not have the tools and the power to change the state of affairs in the country.
