Protests in North Africa and the Middle East escalate with thousands fleeing a chaotic Libya. Discarded files are found on the floor of the burned central government building in Derna; at the Ras Jdir border post between Libya and Tunisia, hundreds of Tunisians are leaving Libya to escape the unrest; and in Bahrain, the government freed 23 people accused of trying to topple the island’s Sunni Muslim monarchy, along with other prisoners and those detained during last week’s protests.
