BENGHAZI, Libya — Thousands of Libyans sympathetic to the United States marched to the gates of a powerful Libyan militia suspected of killing four Americans including the ambassador last week and demanded that the government disband it, as well as the other armed militant groups that have increasingly behaved with impunity since the government was toppled last year........For many Libyans, the death of Ambassador Stevens represented an unacceptable excess on the part of the militants. Ansar al-Shariah, is the group suspected in the killings.
About 30,000 Libyans in Benghazi poured into a square in front of the main encampment of the group, unfurled a Libyan flag and shouted “with our lives and souls, we redeem you, Benghazi!,” Al Jazeera and other news services reported. Some held signs reading “The ambassador was Libya’s friend,” and “Libya lost a friend.”
