Photographs Of Rocket Propelled Grenade Remains Recovered At Today's Protest In Tripoli, Libya

Thanks to Victor Breiner who sent me the following photographs he took at anti-militia protests held in Tripoli, Libya, today, where it's been reported large number of protesters were killed and injured when one of the militias they were protesting against fired on the crowd

This is the fin assembly from the rear of a projectile used by launchers such as the RPG-7, which can be seen in the below reference image

This photographic evidence appears to support the claim that the protesters were attacked with rocket propelled grenades, along with other weapons.  

If anyone has any more images of the remains of munitions recovered from the scene of the attack then feel free to send them to me at the below contact details.

  1. The pictures are commendably clear and it's pretty obviously an RPG-7 or clone.

    Any incredulity stems from the action of firing one into a crowd of demonstrators.
