BENGHAZI, Libya (AP) -- About 200 Libyan protesters have stormed
the grounds of the transitional government's headquarters and are
demanding a meeting with the country's interim leaders.

The protesters used hand grenades Saturday to break through the
gate and into the compound housing the National Transitional
Council's headquarters in the eastern city of Benghazi.

They are banging on the building's doors and calling for an official to address them.

Residents in Benghazi, where the anti-Gadhafi uprising broke out
in February, have been protesting for nearly two weeks, demanding
transparency and justice from the country's new leaders.

Some say new elections laws drafted by the NTC do not reflect
the demands of the general public.
