Protests broke out in Libya, as demonstrators called for the ouster of Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi. Area hospitals reported that 38 people were injured in clashes with police.

The protests in Benghazi, Libya's second-largest city, started when police arrested an activist who was representing victims from a 1996 incident at a Libyan prison. The arrest came after talks between the Libyan government and the families over compensation broke down.

The protests continued until 4 a.m. Wednesday. According to a report from FoxNews.com, the protestors shouted, "No God but Allah, Moammar is the enemy of Allah." While official Libyan media did not mention the protests, videos from the protest were posted on the internet.
