GAZA CITY — Hundreds of students in Gaza City on Tuesday rallied in support of Libyan protesters who are trying to topple longtime ruler Moammar Gaddafi.

About 1,500 Islamic University students rallied holding signs reading "Gaddafi is the enemy of God."

Gaddafi has ruled Libya for over four decades, and has been a staunch supporter of the Palestinians.

Rights groups say over 200 Libyans have been killed since protests erupted last week.

Popular uprisings in the region have so far toppled the autocratic leaders of Tunisia and Egypt. Bloody protests have rattled Bahrain and Yemen.
