Libya crisis: Opposition 'ready for change'

A leading Libyan opposition figure has said the movement is well placed to take over the running of the country "when Gaddafi falls".

Hassan El Amin, who has returned to Libya after more than 30 years' exile in the UK, said there was now "a certain degree of organisation" among the opposition.

He said the internet and social networking sites had been invaluable in the rise of the opposition, with calls for change growing over the past few years until "by the time the revolution has started, there were thousands of them".
