Scores of Libyans staged an anti-terrorism demonstration in al-Keesh Square Benghazi on Friday, February 20, 2015.

The demonstrators called for the backing of the Libyan army and for the international community to support the Tobruk based government's demand at the UN Security Council to lift the ban on arms sales, and to provide the army with the necessary support to fight terrorism.

The demonstrations came following a triple suicide bomb attack in the eastern town of al-Qubbah, which claimed more than 40 lives.

The attacks were claimed by the 'Islamic State' in retaliation, they said, for the air strikes carried out on the IS stronghold of Derna earlier this week.
