Protests in Tripoli after prayers

After Friday prayers, hundreds of protesters braved uncertain conditions to have their voices heard in Tripoli.  A BBC News reporter that was on the scene says that security forces responded with tear gas and rubber bullets.  Meanwhile, explosions and heavy artillery was heard in the port town Ras Lanuf where opposition fighters are advancing on pro-Qaddafi forces.  Reports from the opposition claim that they have taken the city, while official Libyan state TV reports that pro-Qaddafi forces had held the city.  Libyan Air Force loyal to Qaddafi have also been reported to have conducted a couple of air-strikes against ammunition depots.
