Death Toll in Libya at 200
Via the BBC: Libya unrest: Scores killed in Benghazi ‘massacre’
More than 200 people are known to have died, doctors say, with 900 injured.
The most bloody attacks were reported over the weekend, when a funeral procession was said to have come under machine-gun and heavy weapons fire.
Human Rights Watch puts the number of dead since Wednesday at 173.
This continues to be a tragic illustration of the fact that protests alone have no inherent power against bullets if the regime in power is willing to pull the trigger. While the government in Bahrain appears willing to talk, Gaddafi apparently isn’t interested.
