TRIPOLI - Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan stepped up his rhetoric against Syrian President Bashar Assad on Friday, saying those in Syria who inflict repression on the people will not survive.

Erdogan, who is visiting Libya, told a cheering crowd in Tripoli's Martyrs' Square, formerly Green Square, that by ousting Muammar Gaddafi the Libyan people had set an example to others seeking to throw off oppression.

"You are the ones who showed the whole world that no administration can stand in the way of the might and will of the people," Erdogan said, as people chanted "Turkey, Turkey."

"Do not forget this: those in Syria who inflict repression on the people will not be able to stand on their feet because oppression and prosperity cannot exist together."
