Libya: Another Islamic theocracy targets its citizens

August 17, 2011


Muammar Gaddafi’s government appears to be preparing for a violent final showdown after it emerged his beleaguered regime had fired a Scud missile at rebel territory as opposition forces closed in on the capital, Tripoli.

The rebels were attempting to identify the trajectory of the missile, fired from Colonel Gaddafi’s stronghold of Sirte, even as his envoys headed for new talks with the opposition and a United Nations special envoy in Tunisia.
