A week after anti-regime rebels took control of most of the Libyan capital, life is slowly returning to normal.

Shops have reopened, there's brisk business at the market. Only the near-incessant blaring of car horns, and noisy celebrations suggest that life has changed in Tripoli for ever. At one market, residents are stocking up on canned goods and eggs, and haggling over fresh fruit.
