Libya post-Qaddafi: A New Era Begins

In Libya's capital Tripoli, residents could be seen celebrating the death of Muammar Qaddafi and his regime on Thursday. Fighters of the National Transitional Council ended a eight month battle when they captured the desert town of Sirte where they found, and killed, former leader Qaddafi, his son Mo'tassim as well as his right hand Abu-Bakr Yunis Jabr, the Libyan Minister of Defense and a firm supporter of Qaddafi. However, there are unconfirmed reports about Qaddafi's son Seif-al Islam being captured and wounded. Although Libyans are welcoming a new chapter in their country's history, they also shared concerns about the challenges ahead. "Yes, we are going to face a big challenge of course, but we are going to celebrate the victories well of all the challenges," said Abudu Sam, a resident in Tripoli. Another resident, Khalifa, expressed his hopes for a positive change, saying that "I hope that Libyans from all over the country will now unite so we can celebrate and herald in Libya's freedom." People in the Arab region also shared their sentiments on Qaddafi's fate. "I think this is God gave him what he needed because he gave many people deaths. He was supposed to go away from the country from the beginning. But after eight month or something like that, now we have around 50,000 people dead I guess. I believe it's over now," said Qatari resident Ehab Saleh, after he heard the news of Qaddafi's death. It is not just Libyans who are thinking about their country's future. Leaders around the world have welcomed the news and have called on the new government to provide stability for Libyans after they were subjected to 42 years of Qaddafi's rule in which they were denied basic rights.
