Liberation to be declared tomorrow: Libya official

The declaration will allow Libya`s new rulers to move forward with efforts to transform the nation into a democracy.



Tripoli: A military spokesman says Libya`s transitional government will declare liberation on Sunday after months of bloodshed that culminated in the death of longtime leader Muammar Gaddafi.

Officials from the governing National Transitional Council had said the announcement would be made on Saturday in the eastern city of Benghazi, the revolution`s birthplace.

But spokesman Abdel-Rahman Busin says preparations are under way for a Sunday ceremony. He didn`t give an explanation for the delay. The declaration will allow Libya`s new rulers to move forward with efforts to transform the oil-rich nation into a democracy.
Libyan authorities are facing questions about how Gaddafi was killed after images emerged showing he was found alive and taunted and beaten by his captors.
