(Newser) – Libyans at home and abroad took to the streets today to celebrate the death of you know who. “This is the happiest moment of my life,” says a 22-year-old driver in Benghazi. “When I heard the news on television I didn’t believe it; I ran off to the streets and I started jumping up and down.” Thousands of Yemenis used the occasion to celebrate and renew their call for the ouster of President Ali Abdullah Saleh, notes Bloomberg.
