English translation of an SMS message circulating widely throughout Libya right now, as rebel forces and anti-Gaddafhi protestors take over "Green Square," renaming it "Martyr Square":
"God is great. We congratulate the Libyan people as Gaddafhi falls. We encourage Libyan people to go out to streets, protect, and keep the public buildings safe. Long live free Libya. —The National Transitional Council".
