Hundreds of anti-government demonstrators have taken to the streets of Libya and Bahrain as Arab unrest spreads through the Gulf region and North Africa.

Witnesses say protesters in the Libya’s second largest city of Benghazi chanted slogans demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Baghdadi al-Mahmoudi.

The rioting was a rare show of unrest in Libya, which has been tightly controlled by leader Muammar Gaddafi for over 40 years but has also felt the ripples from revolts in its neighbours Egypt and Tunisia.

Overnight protesters armed with stones and petrol bombs had set fire to vehicles and fought with police in Benghazi and later posted videos on YouTube.
