Sauad al-Mistari, 65, shows a passport and photograph of her son Mohammed Youssef during an interview with Reuters journalists in Tripoli August 29, 2011. The first Eid al-Fitr, the great feast that closes the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, to be celebrated by Libyans after the fall of Muammar Gaddafi is marked by a shortage of everything from water to money. Yet nothing seems able to spoil the celebration of freedom -- what the people of Tripoli are calling the Eid of Victory. For Sauad al-Mistari, the happiness of toppling Gaddafi is incomplete. She lost her 23-year-old son Mohammed Youssef, an economics student, last Sunday during the push into Tripoli. Picture taken August 29, 2011.
