Libya: A year after revolution

It is a year since the brutal death of the Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, the dictatorial leader who was found in a convoy and died bloodied and beaten by the side of a road.

From the Libyan capital Tripoli, the BBC's Libya correspondent Rana Jawad asked what has changed and how ordinary Libyans feel one year after the revolution.

A former supporter of Colonel Gaddafi was critical of post-revolution Libya, saying "nothing has changed, maybe things are worse now… the problem now is chaos, people have no direction and don't know who is leading them."

One book store owner explained told Rana that he was pleased with the changes: "it is a revolution for my country… I'm very happy, that is enough."
