Hundreds of people protested Libyan leader Muammar al Gaddafi in Istanbul, Turkey's largest city, on Tuesday.

Holding flags, which Libya used between 1951 and 1969, and pictures of Gaddafi, around 100 protesters gathered outside the Libyan Consulate General in Istanbul.

"Leave, leave Gaddafi" and "Murderer Gaddafi" were among some slogans chanted by the protesters. A banner that read "Big Massacre in Libya" was hung on the wall of the consulate building.

The protesters also laid a black wrath at the entrance of the Libyan consulate general.

A group of NGOs also protested on Monday night in front of the Libyan Consulate in support of the Libyan peoples' revolt against leader Muammar Gaddafi.

Photos of Gaddafi were set alight, with protestors denouncing him as well as his sons.

The Humanitarian Aid Foundation (İHH), the Association of Human Rights and Solidarity for Oppressed Peoples (MAZLUM-DER) and the Freedom Association (Özgür-Der) were among the members of NGOs.
