Libyan military defections mount
Posted on February 26, 2011 by v1d

There is mounting evidence that a growing number of Libyan military personnel are defecting and joining the opposition against Colonel Gaddafi. At the nations biggest navy base in opposition- controlled Benghazi, officers have declared a free Libya. In the western city of Zawiya, amateur film shows soldiers being carried by protesters. One Libya, one people they chanted. Opposition sources say the military units defecting to them are well-armed, well-disciplined and well- organised.
