After 42 years of rule by Muammar Qaddafi, the nation has declared itself free.

“We declare to the whole world that we have liberated our beloved country, with its cities, villages, hill-tops, mountains, deserts and skies,” said an official who opened the ceremony in Benghazi, the place where the uprising erupted in February and which has been the headquarters for the National Transitional Council (NTC).

Salah el Ghazal, another offical who addressed the tens of thousands of people gathered for the celebrations, that Libya was blessed with Mustafa Abdel Jalil, the head of the NTC.

“God has blessed us with the Mustafa Abdel Jalil, who deserves to be the man of the hour,” said Ghazal, who is a local official of the NTC.
