Libya’s new ‘leader’ says Sharia law will be used as basis to guide country after fall of Gaddafi regime

Libya’s interim leader has said Sharia law will be used as the basis for new legislation as the country removes all traces of the Gaddafi regime.

Breaking new ground: Interim Libyan leader Mustafa Abdel Jalil waves to supporters after making his first speech in Martyrs' Square, Tripoli

Mustafa Abdel Jalil, making his first public speech in Tripoli in front of 10,000 people, warned against reprisals by rebel forces against elements of the Gaddafi regime. And he said that ‘extremist ideology’ would not be tolerated under the new regime.

The National Transitional Council chairman said: ‘We seek a state of law, prosperity and one where sharia is the main source for legislation, and this requires many things and conditions.’ Pro-Gaddafi fighters yesterday killed 15 guards at an oil refinery in an attempt to disrupt the NTC’s bid to revive the oil-based Libyan economy.

And a Syrian-based television station claimed it had received a new message from the fugitive Libyan leader, who has issued regular battle calls to his followers in the three weeks since Tripoli was overrun.

It quoted Colonel Gaddafi, who it said was still in Libya, as saying: ‘We cannot give up Libya to colonisation one more time… there is nothing more to do except fight till victory.’ The interim council is struggling to assert its control over the entire country and capture a handful of stubbornly defended pro-Gaddafi towns. Human rights group Amnesty International has warned that the security vacuum risks sending Libya spiralling into a bloody cycle of attacks and reprisals. source – Daily Mail UK
