Celebrations rocked Tripoli's Martyrs' Square on Tuesday, as the chief of Libya's revolutionary council addressed thousands gathered in the capital. "Hold your head high, you're a free Libyan!" Mustafa Abdul Jalil said. According to the Associated Press, Abdul Jalil called on Libyans to build a democratic state based on the rule of law. "No retribution, no taking matters into your own hands and no oppression. I hope that the revolution will not stumble because of any of these things," he reportedly said.
