Benghazi: Libyan woman Ayman Al Abidi, who stormed into a Tripoli hotel on Saturday, telling foreign reporters that she had been raped by government troops, has been released, reported a spokesman for the Gaddafi regime. In Benghazi hundreds of men and women held a rally in support of the rape victim.
Following disturbing pictures of Ayman Al Abidi that hit the TV airwaves in Benghazi almost 24 hours after the alleged incident, there was outrage in this rebel capital. Men and women held a rally in support of her and marched towards the courthouse in Benghazi. “We are very sad for this and no will accept what happened,” said a Libyan protestor.
Many people in Libya are concerned about her situation and they say that is just a glimpse of what they've been facing for decades.
