Sean PennActor and human rights activist Sean Penn has saluted the courage of Libyan freedom fighters who overthrew dictator Muammar Gaddafi's government last month.

Gaddafi's 41-year rule came to an end on September 20 when he was ousted by rebels backed by officials from the intergovernmental military alliance, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

Penn has been traveling across North Africa and joined Egyptian protesters in Cairo last week to add his voice to calls demanding a speedy end to the political regime by another ousted leader, Hosni Mubarak, who resigned earlier this year.

This week, the actor made a stop in the Libyan capital of Tripoli to lend his support to the political activists, telling reporters he admired Libyan citizens for having "the courage to say, 'We want freedom.'"

And he is confident that Libya will soon become a true democratic state.

He says, "An enormous price has been paid, but I think there is no question that they can follow it through."
