Thousands of protesters take over Radical Islamist HQ

Benghazi, Libya (CNN) --
Initial reports indicated that, ahead of the consular attack, Ansar al-Sharia had organized a protest to decry an inflammatory film that mocks the Muslim Prophet Mohammed and also protest the United States, where the film was privately produced.
On Thursday, Libyan Prime Minister Mustafa Abushagur said eight detained in connection with that assault include members of Ansar al-Sharia, though he added that not all the attackers came from one specific group.
Responding to the report from Benghazi, U.S. Sen. John McCain applauded the citizens' efforts Friday and said it represented the true, freedom-loving Libya that he and other U.S. officials involved in the country knew.
"Somewhere Chris Stevens is smiling," the Arizona Republican said. "This is what we knew ... about Libya."


**** yes.

Hundreds of Libyan protesters have stormed the Benghazi headquarters of Islamist group Ansar al-Sharia in a backlash after last week's attack on the US consulate.

Security forces were also involved and took over several militia bases, evicting many militia fighters.

The assault follows a day of anti-militia protests in Benghazi, sparked by the storming of the consulate.

Some 30,000 anti-militia protesters had marched in Benghazi earlier on Friday.
