A Libyan militia group fired on Friday at protesters wanting them to move out of their headquarters in southern Tripoli, killing at six three and wounding more than 60 others, 15 of them in critical condition, the Libyan state television reported.

The militias are holdovers from the 2011 uprising that ousted Muammar Qaddafi and now a powerful force in the increasingly lawless North African country.
Sadat al-Badri, president of the Tripoli local council, or town hall, who had called for the protest, told AFP the shots fired at the hundreds of demonstrators came from inside the headquarters.
“Tensions are on the rise in Tripoli. We’re going to announce a general strike and launch a civil disobedience campaign until these militias leave,” he said.

Residents of Tripoli frequently demonstrate against the militias, who have rejected calls from a weak central government to leave the capital.
