Libyans storm Ansar al-Shariah Brigade compound in Benghazi

Hundreds of Libyans angry over last week's killing of the U.S. ambassador stormed Friday the compound of the Islamic extremist militia, Ansar al-Shariah Brigade, suspected in the attack, evicting militiamen and setting fire to their building in Benghazi.
Ansar al-Shariah fighters initially fired in the air to disperse the crowd, but eventually took to their heels with their weapons and vehicles when it was overrun by waves of protesters shouting "No to militias."
