Nato ends Libya intervention

Nato chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen yesterday hailed the end of the alliance's military intervention in Libya, which helped bring about the death of deposed leader Muammar Gaddafi. “It's great to be in Libya, free Libya,” Rasmussen told a news conference in the capital Tripoli. Shortly after he spoke, members of the ruling National Transitional Council elected Abdul al-Raheem al-Qeeb as the new interim prime minister. His predecessor resigned after Libya was officially declared liberated after the capture of Gaddafi's hometown Sirte and his subsequent killing.
