TRIPOLI (Reuters) - Several hundred supporters of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi gathered in the capital on Thursday to counteract online calls for an anti-government "day or rage" inspired by uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia.
New York-based Human Rights Watch said Libyan authorities had detained 14 activists, writers and protesters who had been preparing the anti-government protests, and there were unconfirmed reports of two people killed in an eastern city.

In a country where public dissent is rarely tolerated, plans for the protests were being circulated by anonymous activists on social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter but telephone lines to some parts of the country were out of order.

'Four shot dead' in Libya protests
(UKPA) – 35 minutes ago

Four people have been killed by Libyan government forces during protests against leader Muammar Gaddafi, an opposition website has said.

The deaths in the city of Beyida came as activists using Facebook and Twitter called for nationwide anti-government demonstrations.

So far, protests have been reported in Beyida and to the west in Libya's second-largest city, Benghazi.

Opposition website Libya Al-Youm said the protesters were killed by snipers from the Internal Security Forces. It is not clear when they were killed.

The Libyan government maintains tight control over the media and the reports could not be independently confirmed.

The opposition is hoping to tap into unrest in the region that has ousted leaders in Tunisia and Egypt.

confused ?

ShababLibya:
reports in benghazi alot of women are taking to the streets (very good sign)
noway back for benghazi now

we will try to get a rough estimate asap, but now #Benghazi city center is upside down, fire guns rocks

also building in Zintan on fire, will try to tell you which one it is, i hear yefren also burnt a gov building

word on the street: Tripoli is waking up very slowly. this is crucial for a successful revolution

we did NOT get any word on soldiers joining protesters yet, just a few security forces, #matteroftime

BREAKING: Ajdabiya Interior security building burning, smoke covering the sky in the city

I assume that's a different building, not the military one which was reported earlier.

At least 14 anti-government protesters reported dead in Libya

Demonstrators take to the streets against Gadhafi in Day of Rage across North African country, sparring with loyalists counter protests; accurate casualty reports are hard to come by due to media blackouts.
