    A group of activists claiming to be part of the February 17 youth revolution organised a small protest at dawn in the Libyan capital, Tripoli, on Saturday.

    Its declared objectives are to support efforts to oust Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, to raise morale in the silenced capital, to resist attempts to silence dissent and to show solidarity with pro-democracy fighters across the country.

    The protest statement being read out is in Arabic.
