Signs of looting and a massacre by Libya's victorious revolutionaries in Muammar Qaddafi's hometown of Sirte have some on edge.
Sharia law is set to guide Libyan legislation, but the transitional government insists it will be moderate.
Libyans officially celebrated the liberation of the country from the rule of Muammar Qaddafi today, just days after he was killed after fleeing his hometown of Sirte.
NATO's Libya campaign has been hailed as a model because it spread the financial and military burden and had limited aims. But some aspects of the Libya operation may be unique.
Now that Qaddafi is dead and Sirte is captured, Libyans can repay those countries who helped in his ouster not through kickbacks or development contracts, but by establishing a stable, democratic, economically open future for Libya. That's the real 'peace dividend.'
Muammar Qaddafi was killed as he attempted to flee his last remaining stronghold of Sirte, according Libya's National Transitional Council.
The armed militias and loose weapons pose a significant threat to Libya as it tries to build a stable democratic government, Secretary of State Clinton said Tuesday.
Libya's transitional forces say they have entered Bani Walid and contained pro-Qaddafi fighters in Sirte. Meanwhile, concerns are emerging about a possible insurgency fueled by Qaddafi loyalists.
