Protestors Arrested For Tearing Down Qaddafi Pictures At Libyan Mission

WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) -- On the same day anti-Qaddafi forces claimed victories closer to the Libyan capital, anti-Qaddafi protesters in Washington were kicked out of the Libyan Mission.

"Is this a free country or is this Libya?" shouted one protestor.

"But this is our embassy," shouted another as she was asked to leave by security guards.

The Libyan Mission is not officially an embassy, but it is the closest thing that Libyans have to an embassy in the U.S.

"We just want to show the anti-Qaddafi forces in Libya that the Libyans in America have taken control of the Libyan Embassy," said Rihab Elhaj, one of the organizers of Thursday's protest. "Instead we were kicked out of trying to enter our own embassy."

"Our hope was to change the flag. We don't want Qaddafi's flag. This is the Libyan embassy. We don't want his picture there. He doesn't represent us anymore," said Tehane Ali, a protestor from Libya who now lives in Virginia.
