Libyans refuse to split their country after rebel take over

common libyans chanted slogans demanding unity and used shoes to hit photos of Ahmed Zubair al-Senussi, the head of the regional council seeking a split.

according to BBC reports the rallies took place after Friday prayers in the capital Tripoli and in Benghazi, the main city in the east.

Tribal and rebel  leaders there announced the unpopular moves on Tuesday.

In a BBC interview, Mr Senussi said he was ready to hold talks with the country’s rebel leadership about setting up the oil-rich semi-autonomous territory, to be known as Cyrenaica.
