http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-19680785The militia suspected of killing the US ambassador to Libya nearly two weeks ago has been driven out of its base in the eastern city of Benghazi.Police and protesters stormed the HQ of the Islamist group Ansar al-Sharia.The HQ of the Sahaty Brigade, said to have official backing, was also stormed. At least nine people were killed there, another died elsewhere.Witnesses say supporters of Ansar al-Sharia gathered outside its Benghazi headquarters, in front of the crowd, waving black and white banners.They fired into the air to try to disperse the protesters, but fled with their weapons after the base was surrounded by waves of people shouting "No to militias".Buildings and a car were set alight and fighters evicted.Earlier, some 30,000 protesters marched through Benghazi calling for an end to the armed groups and a return to the rule of law.There has been a wave of hostility towards the militias since US Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three others Americans died in last week's attack on the Benghazi consulate
