Gadhafi gone: A dictator’s brutal legacy

With the death Moammar Gadhafi, the northern African country of Libya enters a new era, one of hope, but also uncertainty. For a moment, the people of Libya celebrate the death of a brutal dictator who ruled every aspect of their lives for the past 40 years. Even when he went into hiding in recent months he was still feared, like a vampire who was out of site but could strike at any time.

But as Libyan's rejoice, many questions remain. Can the transitional council form a stable government, capable of leading the country towards a future of peace and security? Internationally, what kind of relationship will the new government have with America and the rest of the world?

This week on Around the World, Christiane Amanpour's guest is Lisa Anderson, President of the American University in Cairo, Egypt and a expert in Libyan politics. They will discuss the future of Libya and how it will impact the region and the world.
