CAIRO — At least one person was killed Saturday and a dozen more shot in the head and chest as Moammar Gadhafi's forces fired on mourners the eastern city of Benghaz in Libya

The forces wiped out a protest encampment and clamped down on Internet service throughout Libya as the regime tried to squelch calls for an end to the ruler's 42-year grip on power.

Libyan protesters were back on the street for the fifth straight day, but Gadhafi has taken a hard line toward the dissent that has ripped through the Middle East and swept him up with it.
