British Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Nicolas Sarkozy gave Libya's new rulers strong support during a landmark visit to Tripoli Thursday, vowing to release billions of dollars more in frozen assets and to push ahead with NATO strikes against Moammar Gadhafi's last strongholds.

Meanwhile, Libya's capital city is getting back on its feet after months of conflict. Water and power supplies are being restored. Shops and banks are open again, the city is relatively secure and there's a sense of freedom in the air.
