Political Libya
Once spurned by the most of the countries over the 1988 bombing of Pan AM Flight 103 above the Scottish town of Lockerbie, Libya has undergone dramatic transition in recent years. The control of the Ottoman Turks from the area around Tripoli came to an end in 1911 when they were supplanted by the Italians. However, thanks to its defeat in World War II, Italy had to leave the territory.
After being administered by the UN Libya achieved independence in 1951. With the discovery of oil in 1959, there was a change in the country’s’ fortunes. In 1969 the 27-year-old Muammar Gaddafi led a military coup and deposed the ruling king. Libya entered into a new political era from here.
Colonel Gaddafi' is known for his Third Universal Theory as an alternative to both communism and capitalism. He went some extra length to espouse his own ideology by supporting subversive and terrorist activities in other countries.
Tripoli was subjected to UN sanctions in 1992 following the Lockerbie case. However, Libya formally took responsibility for the Pan AM Flight incident in 2003. After that sanctions were lifted and the country is finding favour in the comity of nations.

Actually What is happening in Libya, why libya people protesting, why libyans demonstrating, Libyan people demand

A mostly desert country Libya came under the rule of various empires such as Vandals, Byzantines, Arabs and Ottoman Turks. Ottoman Turks gave way to the Italians who took control of Libya in 1911. Thus  Libya  became a colony of Italy till the latter’s debacle at the World War II. Libya became independent in 1951.

Colonel Gaddafi considers himself a revolutionary and visionary leader. He has been blamed for using  oil funds to support terrorist activities in other parts of the world.
Libya was blamed for the bombing of the Pan AM Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. This resulted in the isolation of Libya in the world. This began to change after Libya accepted the responsibility and two Libyans suspected of the crime were handed over for trial in The Hague under Scottish law. In 2003 Libya agreed to renounce terrorism.
Under a prisoner-exchange agreement signed in 2009 between Britain and Libya, the convicted Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi was freed on compassionate grounds and returned Libya. The payment of compensation to the US victims of the bombing by Libya in 2008 has resulted in the normal diplomatic relations with the US.
Though Libya has extensive reserves of oil and gas, they are still untapped.
