CAIRO — The bodies of scores of protesters shot dead by security forces loyal to longtime leader Muammar Gaddafi littered the streets of a restive district in the Libyan capital on Tuesday, according to a Libyan opposition activist and a Tripoli resident.

Tripoli's inhabitants hunkered down in their homes after the killings and warnings by forces loyal to Gaddafi that anyone on the streets would be shot, Mohammed Ali of the Libyan Salvation Front and the local resident said.

Ali, reached in Dubai, and the Tripoli resident said forces loyal to Gaddafi shot at ambulances and some protesters were left bleeding to death.

The resident spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals.
