UK PM David Cameron: 'Benghazi inspiration to world'

UK Prime Minister David Cameron has praised Libya's interim authority for the way it has established control over the country, but warned that the "hardest part" was still to come.

Mr Cameron and French President Nicolas Sarkozy are on a visit to Tripoli, the first by Western leaders since Col Muammar Gaddafi was ousted last month.

Speaking in Benghazi's Tahrir square, the emblematic focal point of the uprising, Mr Cameron said the city had been an inspiration to the world.
