Protesters stormed Misrata Local Radio on Sunday and broadcast a statement announcing overthrow of the municipal council.

The protesters said a steering committee would be selected within 24 hours to manage the city’s affairs.

They accused the council of violating the laws and betraying the city’s martyrs and principles of 17 February revolution.

Misrata Municipality said later in a statement that its members will continue to work as normal and it would deal with this radio announcement through the legal channels.
