    Report: Libya strongman Gadhaffi orders destruction of oil wells

    By Leo Reyes.

    Unconfirmed reports indicate Libyan strongman Muammar Gadhaffi has ordered the destruction of oil wells in Libya as violent protest in the eastern city of Benghazi and the capital city of Tripoli enters its second week of chaos.'s Robert Baer wrote, "There's been virtually no reliable information coming out of Tripoli, but a source close to the Gaddafi regime I did manage to get hold of told me the already terrible situation in Libya will get much worse. Among other things, Gaddafi has ordered security services to start sabotaging oil facilities. They will start by blowing up several oil pipelines, cutting off flow to Mediterranean ports. The sabotage, according to the insider, is meant to serve as a message to Libya's rebellious tribes: It's either me or chaos." Libya is one of the world's biggest source of oil and any threat or incident that would destroy the country's oil wells would trigger a rapid spiraling of oil prices around the world which would eventually translate into higher prices of commodities and services worldwide. William Alden of Huffington Post reports, "The price of oil, a key economic indicator, has reached a level not seen since 2008, when economies plunged into recession. Mideast unrest has already begun to affect markets in the United States, as the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 stock indices have stumbled. As the price of oil shoots higher, both the national and global economic recovery could be at risk." Since protests in the Middle East began, investors have feared that the supply of oil could be compromised. In Egypt, the worry was that the Suez Canal and the Sumed pipeline, which convey nearly 3 million barrels daily, would be blocked. As protests spread, investors' fears grew: If unrest were to hit an oil-producing country, the world's oil supply could suffer, the report added. Meanwhile, Libyan military authorities continue its crackdown on hapless protesters using brute force in dispersing the increasing number of protesters. Although the eastern city of Benghazi has been secured by opposition forces, the capital city of Tripoli has become a scene of chaos and violence as protesters continue to resist the forces of the government. Scores of deaths have been reported in Tripoli on top of more than a hundred people who died in city of Benghazi. As violence continue to erupt in Tripoli, Libya's diplomats who are posted in many countries around the world have either resigned their posts or expressed their dismay on the manner the government is addressing the situation.

    Two Libyan pilots who refused to bomb protesters land in Malta

    By Leo Reyes.

    Two Libyan air force fighter pilots who were ordered to bomb protesters in Libya refused to carry out order from their superiors and instead flew to Malta according to Maltese government officials.
    Official in Malta said the two pilots, both colonels, took off from a base near Tripoli. One of them has requested political asylum. The two said they decided to fly to Malta after being ordered to bomb anti-government protesters in Libya's second largest city of Benghazi, the sources said. Meanwhile, Aljazeera reports, "Diplomats at Libyan embassies in the US, the United Nations, the Arab League, Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Poland, India and Bangladesh, among others, have either resigned from their posts, or disavowed links to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's government." "Many say that they now stand with the protesters, and have called for international intervention into what at least one deputy ambassador termed a "genocide", the report added. Libyan ambassador to the US Ali Aujali said, "I think [Gaddafi] should step down, of course, after what's happening in our country now. There's no other solution. He should step down and give the chance for the people to make their future. "How can I support a government killing our people? What I have seen in front of my eyes is not acceptable at all." The more significant resignations were those of the Libyan mission at the United Nations who resigned "en masse" as they called on employees of Libyan embassies all over the world to "stand with their people", especially the mission at the UN European headquarters in Geneva, which they said should seek action by the UN Human Rights Council there. Meanwhile Peru has reportedly severed ties with Libya. "Peru is suspending all diplomatic relations with Libya until the violence against the people ceases", Peru president Alan Garcia said. "Peru also strongly protests against the repression unleashed by the dictatorship of Muammar Gaddafi against the people who are demanding democratic reforms to change the government which has been led for 40 years by the same person.", Garcia added. Peru is reported as the first country to sever ties with Libya.

    Mfa maji haachi kutapatapa na dalili tumeishaziona. Atawafuata wenzie soon, tena akilipua visima itakuwa ni ishara kuwa nchi anaiona kama ni mali yake binafsi na hapo ndo wanalibya watakapomuonyesha kuwa hakuna ufalme miaka hii.

    Tripoli-Vurugu yasababisha vifo vya zaidi ya watu mia moja nchini Libya

    (GMT+08:00) 2011-02-23 18:01:15

    Vurugu ziliyosababishwa na maandamano yaliyofanyika kwa siku mfululizo nchini Libya imesababisha vifo vya zaidi ya watu mia moja. Kiongozi wa Libya Bw. Muammar Gadhafi tarehe 22 alitoa hotuba akisema, kamwe hatajiuzulu na hataondoka nchini Libya katika siku za baadaye, bora awe mtu wa kujitolea mhanga.
    Serikali ya Libya jana usiku ilitangaza kupitia televisheni ikisema, vurugu hizo imesababisha vifo vya raia na askari 300, lakini takwimu kutoka televisheni ya Al Jazeera zilionesha kuwa watu 500 wamefariki kutokana na vurugu hizo na wengine 1, 400 hawajajulikana walipo. Habari nyingine zinasema, Baraza la Usalama la Umoja wa Mataifa tarehe 22 liliitisha mkutano wa dharura kuhusu hali ya Libya, na kuitaka serikali ya Libya ikomeshe mara moja vurugu hizo na kukidhi matakwa halali ya wananchi hatua kwa hatua.
