ABSTRACT
This article reports on the changes in Libya and its leader, Muammar Kaddafi. Once the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism, the country has ended its support for armed radicals around the world, is cooperating with Western intelligence agencies and leaving its neighbors alone. Libya has paid reparations for the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Fight 103 and other bombings. However, Kaddafi faces worrisome challenges from within including a poor economy and agitated Islamic fundamentalists.
