Libya Government Bombs, Opens Fire on Civilians

Hosted by

A bloody crackdown that's killed at least 200 people may have backfired against Libyan strongman Col. Moammar Gadhafi. Today, the justice minister and members of Libya's UN delegation resigned. Yesterday, on state TV, his son Saif al-Islam Gadhafi ominously threatened that there would be no restraint against protestors but that "rivers of blood" would flow.
