Gaddafi Killed After Capture

Colonel Muammar Gaddafi was not killed in crossfire but after he was captured by forces of the National Transitional Council (NTC) that is governing the country since August, Dr. Ibrahim Tika told journalists in Libya. Tika, who performed DNA tests on his body on Friday, claims Gaddafi was killed by a bullet in the head and another in the stomach after he was captured in Sirte, his hometown. Gaddafi’s son Mutassim was killed by a shot in the upper part of his chest, Tika added.

Gaddafi Body Killed

Rupert Colville, the spokesman for the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, said an international investigation should be conducted to find out how Gaddafi had died, citing mobile phone footage where the former Libyan leader is shown bloodied but alive. A mission by the U.N. Human Rights Council is expected to investigate into Gaddafi’s death along with investigations on other killings, he added.

Mohamed Sayeh, a senior member of the NTC, told journalists that Gaddafi’s body is still in Misrata but the former state leader will not be buried before a third party commission from outside of Libya is able to examine all circumstances surrounding his death. Gaddafi will not be buried publicly but his funeral will be arranged according to Islamic tradition, he added.
