Libya protests: Benghazi 'returning to normal'

Protests continue in Tripoli, but the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi is now firmly in opposition control.

The city is being run by a committee of judges and lawyers and locals are being urged to return to work.

The BBC's Jon Leyne is in Benghazi, where he says people are "nervous" but happy to have escaped the control of Col Gaddafi.
