The truth has become collateral damage in Libya

The world press on Wednesday is asking what Libya will look like after the fall of Gaddafi - and what role the West should play in reconstructing the country. We also look at lessons learned from Iraq and the reaction to Dominique Strauss-Kahn's release in the US.

The Arabist blog takes a look at the Libyan rebels' chances of rebuilding a functional state, from the point of view of a writer in Benghazi who has watched the rebel state take place.

The New York Times analyses the web of contradicting rumours and disinformation coming out of Libya - and questions why the truth is so hard to uncover.

Former British International Development Secretary, Clare Short, tells the Huffington Post about what she learned in Iraq which ought to be avoided in Libya.

And the Guardian looks at how the Dominique Strauss-Kahn case became the trial of the accuser and not the accused.
