A central government building in the Libyan capital of Tripoli was set on fire Monday, London based Arabic speaking paper Al Arabiya reported Monday.

The report comes after witnesses said Monday that Libyan protesters and security forces battled for control of Tripoli's city center overnight, with snipers opening fire and Moammar Gadhafi supporters shooting from speeding vehicles.
