Libyan security forces have killed at least 84 people during the three-day anti-government demonstrations in the country. This was conveyed by the international human rights organization, Human Rights Watch (HRW) based on telephone interviews with local hospital staff and eyewitnesses.

HRW also condemned the violence used against demonstrators in Libya. HRW urged the Libyan authorities to stop violence against peaceful demonstrators.
Libya struck anti-government demonstrations this week following the revolution in Tunisia and Egypt. The demonstration was preceded by the thousands who thronged the streets in the city of Benghazi to call for withdrawal of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.
The situation increasingly out of control with the defection of about 1,000 prisoners from the prison in Benghazi. Even the three prisoners were shot dead by security forces while trying to escape from another prison outside Tripoli, the capital of Libya.
Gaddafi's regime has promised to break all the attempts to overthrow the Libyan leader. Gaddafi came to power in September 1969 through a bloodless military coup
