TRIPOLI - Several people were killed on Tuesday when an armed militia protesting outside the Libyan prime minister's office in Tripoli started shooting, highlighting the country's volatility a month before it holds its first election.

Witnesses and officials said the militia, from the town of Yafran about 100 km (60 miles) southwest of Tripoli, was at the prime minister's compound to demand cash from the government when the protest turned violent.

Adel Osman, a spokesman for the Defense Ministry, said there were dead and injured, but he did not know how many. A security guard inside the building told a Reuters reporter he believed four people were killed.
