Snipers shoot mourners killing 15 in Libya

CAIRO  — A hospital official in Libya's second-largest city said Saturday that 15 people were killed when commandos opened fire on mourners leaving a funeral for protesters seeking Moammar Gadhafi's ouster.
The official said scores more were wounded in the attack.
Gadhafi's regime has been cracking down on protesters demanding he step down and implement democratic reforms following similar uprisings that led to the ouster of the leaders of Egypt and Tunisia.
