So not beduins even ordinary arabs in Libya have diffrent tribes and loyality to tribes is strong but not as strong as yemen tribes...

And thank you man.



How large of a tribe are we talking about with the Warfella and Tuareg? And do you know if they are both with the protesters?




Tuaregs are apparently nomadic Berbers and not Arab. I know Gaddafi was really into Arab nationalism so my guess is the Tuaregs will not be siding with him...

Wiki says in 1993 there were about half a million Tuaregs in Libya.

Can't find anything on the Warfella's.

Here is apparently a map of the ethnic groups and tribes. Not sure how accurate it is. I don't see the Warfella so something must not be right. Maybe I am reading the legend incorrectly and the rose colored names are not different tribes.

1:19 pm The folks at Alive in Libya have posted another audio clip of a phone call from Tripoli overnight on Sunday. It confirms what we've been hearing: Protesters have burned, looted and destroyed a number of government buildings in the Libyan capital, including several police stations and "revolutionary committee" headquarters.

"Every so often we get news that an area has fallen in the hands of the protesters," the man said.

After protesters briefly took the capital's central square, they were confronted by by cars and land cruisers whose passengers opened fire "like it was a war".

LibyansRevolt:
word of medical convoys from arab world heading to #Libya

@ShababLibya Abu Sleem Hospital not prison - Abu Sleem Hosp is the main trauma centre in #Tripoli
-----
okay, so it seems this was about the hospital, not the prison


so... the former tweet from ShababLibya could be related to this:

AlitWeet:
In one day in tripoli 61 has been killed! Just one day! I knew 4 of them killed by protesters in shaded glass cars.

ShababLibya:
thanks for your concern, we are struggling to get in contact with tripoli just at the moment, last heard, calm before the storm this evening

there will be a funeral parade in Tripoli this afternoon inshala, the way the security react will be very interesting


AliTweel, Tripoli:
Nothing is going on in tripoli at the moment, finally i slept for 6hours, it's windy outside but no protests i can hear.
The green square is full of Gaddafi's people, youth driving cars around it, shop owners installing metal shields on their shop doors.

Until now it's 8:30 hours without gunfire in tripoli. I hear nothing.

i think tonight is going to be loud because of the kills happened yesterday, Libyans might take revenge tonight. it's going to be ugly.

So then figures we were hearing before were way underestimated if that is true.
