|Libyan novelist Hisham Matar writes: We got rid of Muammar Gaddafi. I never thought I would be able to write these words. I thought it might have to be something like: 'Gaddafi has died of old age'; a terrible sentence, not only because of what it means but also the sort of bleak and passive future it promises. Now rebel forces have reached Tripoli, we can say we have snatched freedom with our own hands, paid for it with blood. No one now will be more eager to guard it than us.|
