WOODBURY - Violence continued today in Libya, with reports putting the death toll there somewhere between 300 - 1,000 people as the government cracks down on protesters.

Demonstrators lit fires in the streets as they continued to defy Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi.

Opposition groups claim they have taken control of cities and towns near the Libyan capital of Tripoli. Meanwhile, it appears hired African mercenaries are terrorizing Libyans on the streets.

As a result of the ongoing bloodshed, thousands are now fleeing Libya, among them 600 Americans who were taken to Malta by ferries.
