Go to the homes of the politicians, but don’t burn Tripoli!” yelled a protester condemning the vandalism to MTV reporter Alain Dargham. “We can’t believe what we are seeing. It is very upsetting what we are witnessing now,” said Dargham.

According to the Mayor of Tripoli, Riad Yamak, the fire trucks were delayed because they were stopped near the municipality and their keys were seized. They eventually made it to the scene. A member of the municipality, Khaled Tadmori, asserted that these acts do not reflect the desires of the city’s protesters.
