Obama: Gadhafi death ends painful chapter

By BRADLEY KLAPPER and JULIE PACE
Associated Press

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.
