The US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, has held talks with the leaders of Libya's new interim authority in Tripoli.

At a town hall style meeting, Mrs Clinton said she was proud to be standing on the soil of a free Libya and that it was a privilege to see its new future being born.

She is the highest level American official to visit Libya since the uprising started against Colonel Gaddafi.
