Chris Stephen of The Observer has a terrific report on the heartening anti-militia protests that swept through Benghazi last week. I advise you to read the whole thing but I couldn't resist extracting this paragraph:
A well-built man, Ehad El Farsi, stopped me to ask if I was American and to apologise on behalf of Benghazi for the killing of Stevens. Told I was English, he explained he was a politics professor at Benghazi university and wanted to talk to me some time about the merits of singer Chris Rea. "What you have here is the people taking action," he said. "All the people."
