There are indications that Eastern Libya is now independent of Libya. Reports emanating from the city of Benghazi suggest that every element of Col Muammar Gaddafi’s influence in Eastern Libya has been broken. Tribes long hostile to the 68-year-old leader filled the streets in their thousands, lighting fireworks and waving the red, black and green flag of king Idris I- the man Gaddafi overthrew in 1969.

Libya: Independence for the east? -
