TRIPOLI - Libyan protesters took to the streets on Sunday calling for the disbanding of militias that have plagued Tripoli since the end of the 2011 war.

The government said it was working on taking back control of the interior ministry besieged by an armed group that entered the building on Tuesday and ordered staff to leave.

A crowd of 300 people gathered in the capital's central Algeria Square waving white flags and carrying banners reading "No brigades, no militias, we want an army loyal to the state" as well as "Without an army and police, Libya is trouble".
