UN votes to end Libyan mandate

Interim leaders declare nation officially liberated


 

The United Nations Security Council voted Thursday to end the international military campaign in Libya, effectively ending a seven-month NATO intervention that helped rebels overthrow and eventually execute long-time dictator Moammar Gadhafi. Libya’s interim leaders declared the nation officially liberated last Sunday, after Gadhafi was captured, but much remains to be done in the country, which remains institutionally and culturally hobbled by decades of autocratic rule.
