BENGHAZI, Libya – Hundreds of protesters angry over last week's killing of the U.S. ambassador to Libya stormed the compound of the Islamic extremist militia suspected in the attack, evicting militiamen and setting fire to their building Friday.

In an unprecedented show of public anger at Libya's rampant militias, the crowd overwhelmed the compound of the Ansar Al-Shariah Brigade in the center of the eastern city of Benghazi.

Ansar Al-Shariah fighters initially fired in the air to disperse the crowd, but eventually abandoned the site with their weapons and vehicles after it was overrun by waves of protesters shouting "No to militias."

I am happy to see the people of Libya striving to take back their country. What is the point of usurping one big dictator just to be controlled by small groups of lesser ones?

Fight on citizens of Libya!

This is very good news.

However, I predict the extremists won't take no for an answer and will be back and start using their terror tactixs to single out the protesters and use torture on them to make an example out of them.

I hope not, but that's what they usually do.
