A captured African “mercenary” is protected by Libyan protesters from other Libyan protesters

Update: BBC reports on Gaddafi’s attempts to recruit mercenaries from neighbouring countries by exploiting the discrimination they face by offering cash salaries to young men, how the attacks on African migrants within Libya and the mistaken belief by many Arab Libyans that Libyans of African heritage are mercenaries.

It is a necessary distinction to make.  Just because a person is a “black African” in Libya does not mean they are working with or support Gaddafi.  African migrants have long suffered discrimination at the hands of Gaddafi’s regime as he used them as leverage over Italy.
