UN Votes to End No Fly Zone Over Libya

ABC News(NEW YORK) – Now that Gadhafi is dead, the NATO bombing campaign in Libya is coming to an end.

The UN Security Council has voted unanimously to end the no-fly zone over Libya on October 31st.

Libya's new government had asked the Security Council to keep the no-fly zone in place to prevent any possible advance by Gadhafi loyalists, but diplomats said it is now time for Libyans to "own the process" of governing themselves.
