McCain: Libyans can focus on rebuilding after Gaddafi death

US Senator John McCain, top Republican on the Armed Services Committee, said it was time for the United States to deepen its support for Libya's move toward democracy and safeguard human rights, following the news of Muammar Gaddafi's reported death.
"The death of Muammar Gaddafi marks an end to the first phase of the Libyan revolution," McCain said in a statement. "Now the Libyan people can focus all of their immense talents on strengthening their national unity, rebuilding their country and economy."
It was not clear if McCain had independent confirmation of Gaddafi's death.
