Cartoon: A Peaceful and Democratic Libya

This cartoon by Schrank from The Independent on Sunday shows a Libyan man putting up a 'Wanted' poster for a 'peaceful and democratic Libya', having just removed one with a picture of Colonel Gaddafi, who was killed on Thursday after an assault on his birthplace of Sirte. The wall on which the poster is being stuck is riddled with bullet holes and stained with blood. Spent cartridges are strewn all over the floor. In the background, a group of men are firing their weapons into the air.

Now that Gaddafi is dead, the question is what does the future hold in store for Libya? Will there be a peaceful transition to democracy, or will the deep-rooted rifts between regions and tribes result in further conflict? The cartoonist leaves the question open, though the behaviour of the gun-toting rebels is not exactly reassuring.
