The 'king' is dead

News of former Libyan leader Col. Muammar Gaddafi death are spreading around the world. According to the National Transitional Council (NTC) officials, Gaddafi has been killed after an assault on is home town of Sirte.

I can only imagine the atmosphere and the emotion throughout the country right now. Generations of libyans have long been dreaming for this moment.
