The Libyan army and police on Friday said they have withdrawn from their barracks in the eastern city of Adjabiya, and have joined anti-government protesters, Al Jazeera reported.

Earlier, Libya's Attorney General Abdul Rahman al-Abr also announced that he resigned from the government and is joining the opposition.

Most of the eastern half of Libya has already broken away, and diplomats and ministers have abandoned leader Muammar Gaddafi.
