Libya: Before and After Gaddafi


Libya: Before and After Gaddafi

A lot of water has passed under the bridge since Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was overthrown in 2011.

Many Western leaders have called him a dictator. But under his rule Libya was a prosperous country with people happily living there. Since 2011 Libya has been in a state of civil war. The UN-backed Government of National Accord, headquartered in Tripoli, operates in the western part of the country. The eastern part of the country is governed by its Parliament, with headquarters in the city of Tobruk, which is supported by the Libyan National Army. Thousands of people flee from Libya every year trying to escape war and poverty.
