Libyan independence celebrations kick off.

Benghazi, the second largest city in Libya,

witnessed celebrations of the independence of Libya from the former Muammar

Gaddafi's regime.

The celebrations come after killing of Col. Gaddafi in his native city

Sirte, last Thursday, and so the Libyan territories are freed and the

elimination of the last forces loyal to Gaddafi.

All news televisions broadcasted the ceremony, which began with playing the

new national anthem and a military march of the new Libyan revolutionaries'

vanguards, and a speech addressed by Chairman of the Libyan National

Transitional Council (NTC) Mustafa Abduljalil.

Benghazi was chosen because it launched the spark of revolution in

February, besides the possibility for it to host such ceremony, especially

when it is less of all Libyan cities with major destruction.
