Pro-democracy protesters in Libya have seized several cities, including Benghazi, Sirte and in the border town of al-Zawiya, reports said on Saturday
The Air Force now has dispatched fighter jets to crack down on protesters amid a looming revolution.
Meanwhile in Tripoli, protesters attacked the headquarters of the state television station overnight and set fire to the offices of the People’s Committees — the mainstay of the government.
Reports also say that the security forces killed scores of people in the country’s second largest city, Benghazi, in just few past hours.
The International Federation for Human Rights says as many as 400 people have been killed so far in the revolution.
The developments come as popular revolutions continue to sweep the US-backed autocratic regimes across the Middle East and North Africa.
In the meantime, there have been unconfirmed reports that Gaddafi has fled the country.
