Libya Protests
In this photo taken Monday, Feb. 21, 2011 and made available Tuesday, Feb. 22, 2011, men display victory signs as they ride on a truck scrawled with graffiti in arabic reading "Go, go, go, leave, leave, leave, down with the regime", on their way to volunteer to help clean up streets in Benghazi, Libya. The bodies of protesters shot to death by forces loyal to Moammar Gadhafi were left on the streets of a restive district in the Libyan capital Tuesday, an opposition activist and a resident said, while the longtime leader defiantly went on state TV to show he was still in charge, though the eruption of turmoil in the capital after a week of protests and bloody clashes in Libya's eastern cities has sharply escalated the challenge to Gadhafi.
