Life in Tripoli appears to be up and running, as rebels continue to take control of most of the Libyan capital. Various goods are for sale, despite concerns over fuel and food prices.

Mohammed Jarrahi, a Tripoli resident, said, "Thank God, we have plenty of food in the market. We are still working, like normal days, we have had no rest. We have plenty of milk and potatoes are cheap. They are still three pounds per kilo and people are eating."

The deputy leader of Tripoli's new council says that over 60 percent of Tripoli residents don't have enough water, but that the shortages are due to technical problems, not sabotage by Gaddafi forces.

Many are still in a celebratory mood following the falling of the Gaddafi regime. Throughout the capital, the old Libyan national flag is seen everywhere while framed photographs of him are openly mocked and broken.
