another ACN 2006 which is the highlights of the match between Egypt vs. Libya there first match in the 2006 ACN.
A major international conference highlights Libya's political relations with the UK, the European Union and the USA, its economic outlook and concerns over human rights.
The Italians supplanted the Ottoman Turks in the area around Tripoli in 1911 and did not relinquish their hold until 1943 when defeated in World War II. Libya then passed to UN administration and achieved independence in 1951. Following a 1969 military coup, Col. Muammar Abu Minyar al-QADHAFI began to espouse his own political system, the Third Universal Theory. The system is a combination of socialism and Islam derived in part from tribal practices and is supposed to be implemented by the Libyan people themselves in a unique form of "direct democracy." QADHAFI has always seen himself as a revolutionary and visionary leader. He used oil funds during the 1970s and 1980s to promote his ideology outside Libya, supporting subversives and terrorists abroad to hasten the end of Marxism and capitalism. In addition, beginning in 1973, he engaged in military operations in northern Chad's Aozou Strip - to gain access to minerals and to use as a base of influence in Chadian politics - but was forced to retreat in 1987. UN sanctions in 1992 isolated QADHAFI politically following the downing of Pan AM Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. During the 1990s, QADHAFI began to rebuild his relationships with Europe. UN sanctions were suspended in April 1999 and finally lifted in September 2003 after Libya accepted responsibility for the Lockerbie bombing. In December 2003, Libya announced that it had agreed to reveal and end its programs to develop weapons of mass destruction and to renounce terrorism. QADHAFI has made significant strides in normalizing relations with Western nations since then. He has received various Western European leaders as well as many working-level and commercial delegations, and made his first trip to Western Europe in 15 years when he traveled to Brussels in April 2004. Libya has responded in good faith to legal cases brought against it in US courts for terrorist acts that predate its renunciation of violence. Claims for compensation in the Lockerbie bombing, LaBelle disco bombing, and UTA 772 bombing cases are ongoing. The US rescinded Libya's designation as a state sponsor of terrorism in June 2006. In late 2007, Libya was elected by the General Assembly to a nonpermanent seat on the United Nations Security Council for the 2008-09 term.

As anti-government demonstrations sweep through the Middle East, reports are coming in of protesters clashing with police in the north African country of Libya -- but conflicting accounts of the day make it difficult to determine what’s going to happen next.
Al Jazeera explains the situation, which didn’t necessarily start as an anti-government demonstration.
“They’ve come to demonstrate against the arrest of human rights lawyer Fethi Tarbel, but panic sweeps the crowd, then gunshots ring out. ... After dark, the protesters regroup outside the city’s security directorate. Their chants turn against the government and the 41-year-long rule of Muammar Gaddafi.”
Col. Gaddafi is the Arab world’s longest-serving leader, though he isn’t exactly a dictator -- Libya is officially a government by committee. One writer for the BBC describes it as a quote- “police state” that quashes dissent and other political parties. (Video: The Telegraph)
The state-controlled media reportedly ignored the protests, instead reporting on a pro-Gaddafi rally in quote- “several other cities.” And an anonymous Libyan source dismissed the demonstrations as a revolution to CNN, saying...
"’...there is nothing serious here … These are just young people fighting each other.’ The source said the clashes were ‘not political’ and that ‘Libya is not Egypt... This is not an organized revolution.’”
But the director of an anti-regime website in the United States tells France 24, the demonstrations are just getting started.
EDWARDS: “The protests also spread to other towns, including Tripoli and al Kufra.”
ABDULLA DARRAT: “The protests are building steam and the news is spreading throughout Libya. Keep in mind that all of this happened late in the evening and early morning hours, so most a lot of Libyans will be waking up to news of what happened in Benghazi.”
EDWARDS: “Meanwhile, a number of Facebook groups have been set up calling for a day of protests on Thursday. This one has over 9,000 members.”
So will the world see a repeat of Tunisia and Egypt in Libya? A writer for the BBC says, it’s possible -- but it might be more difficult.
“Libya has had protests before, successfully quashed by the powerful security forces. Whatever happens in the coming protests it will be increasingly difficult for the ageing and erratic Col Gaddafi to resist the calls for political freedom, civil rights, a more equitable sharing of the nation's wealth and a move towards a genuine democracy.”
Keep in mind news media have been taking videos of the protest with a grain of salt, calling most of them quote- “unconfirmed.” Stick with Newsy for more on Libya and other world headlines.
