Feb 20, 9:20 AM EST

CAIRO (AP) -- Libyan forces fired machine-guns at mourners marching in a funeral for anti-government protesters in the eastern city of Benghazi Sunday, a day after commandos and foreign mercenaries loyal to longtime leader Moammar Gadhafi pummeled demonstrators with assault rifles and other heavy weaponry.

A doctor at one city hospital said his morgue had received at least 200 dead from six days of unrest.

Protests explained:

~Caveat~
The posts that concern "anonymous" activities that are occurring all over the world are placed here for informational purposes. I do not advocate nor encourage anyone within the US to participate in activities that are against the laws of our country. I do not speak for anonymous, and do not wish to convey that impression. I have gathered information that is readily and freely found on the internet as a journalist would do, for informational purposes only. No one has given me any "secret" information, nor have I shared anything here that is "secret", to my knowledge. Everything posted here can be found by searching teh google, is widely available to anyone, and should be taken with a grain of salt...or a whole box of same.

Please act responsibly and let your conscience and good sense be your guide. Please be aware that participating in actions that are illegal can have serious consequences. Be aware that not everything you read on the internet is true. Be aware that everyone you speak with or share information with is not your friend.

World events are moving quickly, and there is a tendency to want to be the first to know things, but knowing things and acting upon them are two entirely different things. We live in interesting times, and information and communication occur at the speed of thought. Because of this, sometimes information is presented that is not necessarily true or factual. While I try to present stories with several sources, not all sources are reliable. So I cannot vouch for anything posted here as being 100% accurate. All I can vouch for is my own intentions, and those, should they need clarification, are to pass on information about a movement that is making news, and perhaps making history, but on one thing I wish to be crystal clear. I have no intention of breaking the law, and do not advocate that anyone else do so.

Just sayin'.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
