Libya's interim leaders under fire over governance

BENGHAZI - Hundreds of people have marched in Benghazi calling for a shake-up of Libya's new leadership while nascent political groups have challenged the country's interim rulers in a memorandum, saying their governance plan does not meet the people's demands.
The Benghazi residents marched from a charred compound of former leader Muammar Gaddafi on Friday, singing "the first martyrs were from Benghazi" and criticizing what they called "climbers" and "opportunists" in the new leadership."Some of the executive committee are blood-suckers and thieves and we keep seeing them on TV. They should be in court," said Shukri, a middle-aged auditor, referring to the country's cabinet, which has been officially dissolved but in practice still exists.
