New bloodshed reported in Libya as Gadhafi battles protests

Libyan protesters in the flashpoint city of Benghazi gathered again Sunday to demand the overthrow of leader Moammar Gadhafi in an uprising that’s left more than 100 dead and hundreds wounded, according to human rights groups and Libyan activists. Amnesty International, the international human rights advocacy group, warned Sunday against a “spiraling death toll” and urged Gadhafi to “immediately rein in his security forces amid reports of machine guns and other weapons being used against protesters.”
