ISLAMABAD - US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Friday the death of Muammar Gaddafi marked the start of a new era for Libya.

"The death of Colonel Gaddafi has brought to a close a very unfortunate chapter in Libya's history. But it also marks the start of a new era for the Libyan people, and it is our hope that what I saw in Tripoli on Tuesday first hand, the eagerness of Libyans to building a new democracy, can begin in earnest," Clinton told a news conference in the Pakistani capital, Islamabad.
