WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama welcomed the declaration of liberation by Libya's new leaders on Sunday and urged the transition government to respect human rights and work toward democracy after the fall of Muammar Gaddafi.

"After four decades of brutal dictatorship and eight months of deadly conflict, the Libyan people can now celebrate their freedom and the beginning of a new era of promise," Obama said in a written statement.

With the fighting over, Obama said Libya's Transitional National Council should turn its focus toward elections.
