The United Nations Security Council on Thursday voted unanimously to end international military operations in Libya on Monday 31st October, 2011 at 23.59 Libyan time. This is coming on the heels of the declaration of liberation by the National Transitional Council, Libya’s interim rulers.
The same council had voted in March to authorise “all necessary measures” to protect civilians, after Ghadaffi’s forces started a clampdown on demonstrators across Libyan cities.
Last week Nato and its partners, which had been conducting air strikes, said the campaign would end on 31st October.
Meanwhile, the NTC announced on Thursday that the killers of the late Libyan leader, Muammar Ghadaffi will be brought to justice.
