TRIPOLI - Libyan leader Mohammed Magarief h as said not all areas of the North African country have been fully "liberated", one year after the capture and death of dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

Libya was declared "liberated" a few days after his death on October 20, 2011, and while its new rulers have led the nation to elections, they have struggled to impose their authority on a country awash with weapons.

Speaking on Libyan television late on Friday, the national congress leader singled out the town of Bani Walid, some 160 kms (100 miles) south of Tripoli, a former Gaddafi stronghold which has seen deadly clashes in the last few days as the army struggles to impose order.
