One person dead as unrest spreads across Libya

At least one person has been killed in protests across Libya on Thursday in what anti-government activists described as a "day of rage".

Amnesty International says a man was shot dead when security forces opened fire in the city of al-Bayda.

Police and protesters also reportedly clashed in Zentan and Benghazi, and amateur video footage purportedly shows unrest in Tripoli.

The BBC's Mike Wooldridge reports.
