Libyan artists celebrate post-Gaddafi freedom

As the Libyan opposition struggle to rid the country of the last remnants of Col Muammar Gaddafi's rule, artists and writers have already been revelling in their new found freedom.

Hundreds of new newspapers and magazines have been started and artists have begun exhibiting work that would have seen them imprisoned or even killed under Colonel Gaddafi.
