Liberal alliance 'leads' in Libya polls

The first indications from Libya's first national election in almost 50 years suggest that a liberal alliance is leading the polls in key constituencies including Tripoli and Benghazi.

Early polling by political parties puts the alliance led by Mahmoud Jibril, the head of a rebel government that played a key role in the fight against Colonel Gaddafi last year, in the lead.

Mahmoud Jibril spoke to the BBC's Rana Jawad about reinstating law and order, and how to reintegrate Libya's militias into society.
