President Obama Comments On Gadhafi's Death

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says the death of
Moammar Gadhafi marks the end of a long and painful chapter for
Libya.
Speaking Thursday from the White House Rose Garden, the
president says the Libyan people now have the opportunity to
determine their own destiny. He says they also have a great
responsibility to build a tolerant and democratic Libya.
Obama did not independently confirm Gadhafi's death, and instead
cited the fact that Libyan officials have announced his killing.
A White House official says the U.S. has received similar
reports through diplomatic channels and has confidence in those
reports.
