Libya's rebels open to the UN

Following the taking of the compound of Libyan ruler Muammar al-Gaddafi by the rebels, the National Transitional Council has taken over the task of running the country. Thanks to the support they received in toppling the Libyan regime the rebels are likely to cooperate with the international community, writes the left-liberal daily The Guardian: "The combination of foreign airstrikes - which the rebels realise saved them, albeit without foreign ground forces, which would inevitably antagonise people - gives the West leverage without creating a backlash. Foreign interference is not a dirty word here: ... This means that proposals like bringing in the UN to help with the transitional process, as some Libyan politicians have proposed, is probably going to be broadly acceptable."
