TRIPOLI - Libya's interim government moved to calm its anxious fighters and offer stability on Sunday, announcing plans to draft thousands of the men who ousted Muammar Gaddafi into the police and find other jobs for the rest.

Though Tripoli has become noticeably calmer in recent days, with people drifting back to work, cars back on the roads and cafes and restaurants starting to do business again, there are still large numbers of armed men on the streets. Many more are still in brigades in other parts of the country.

National Transitional Council (NTC) officials on Sunday announced plans to train 3,000 of demobilized rebel fighters as police and national security officers and to set up training schemes and scholarships for others.

The NTC, anxious at all times to encourage national reconciliation, said the plans would also be open to those who fought to defend Gaddafi.
