The following is a recording of a call made by a Tripolian man to the police to report armed men blocking the road. I couldn't get any background information but I have posted the raw English transcript below. It seems genuine.
Policeman: 00:14: Allo Tripoli
Caller: 00:16: Greetings
00:17: I just want to report a person.
00:19: What kind of person?
00:20: He’s standing in the middle of Muharram. He’s blocking the road. He’s armed.
00:24: In front of Ayoubi’s paint shop.
00:27: Where? in Bab el Ramel?
00:29: Yes, in Muharram. He’s just standing in the middle of the road, blocking it. And he’s asking people where they’re going and coming from.
00:35: There are about 5-6 people armed
00:36: There are about 5,000 armed in Tripoli. Okay. Habibi
00:39: but he’s blocking the road!
00:40: Yalla there are about 5000 doing like him.
00:42: Do I shoot? Is that what I’m supposed to do?
