Protesters remove Gaddafi-era flag from Libyan Embassy

Libyan-Americans raised the original flag of an independent Libya at the residence of the Libyan ambassador to the United States. The symbolic gesture was designed to draw attention to the massacre of innocent civilians in Tripoli by the government forces of Moammar Gaddafi. (Ben de la Cruz/The Washington Post)
