As the Libyan military’s violence against protesters continued to escalate, some appeared to have taken it upon themselves to fight back. One anonymous eyewitness, speaking to CNN, exclaimed that over 200 people had died on Sunday amid clashes, and that protesters had used a car bomb in an effort to breach a military case. Other protesters attacked the camp with a tank, but were driven back.

The anonymous man, who was risking his life to make the call using someone else’s SIM card, called the military’s response “genocide” and pleaded for international help. “The situation is extreme here,” he said.
