Results from Libya's first elections after the overthrow of Col Gaddafi have shown gains for an alliance of parties seen as broadly liberal.

The National Forces Alliance, led by interim Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril, has won 39 out of the 80 seats reserved for political parties, local media say.

The Muslim Brotherhood's party has gained 17.
