At the point when western politicians declared Gaddafi has lost his legitimacy, his forces had killed about 10-20 demonstrators in Tripoli and in Benghazi about 200-300 people had been killed when locals stormed the police barracks there. It is unclear exactly under what circumstances the 200-300 people died and how many of them were killed on Gaddafi's orders or were killed by police trying to defend themselves from being overrun as they eventually were. It is unclear how many of them were armed when they were killed.
