Muammar Gaddafi captured and killed in Sirte

Muammar Gaddafi captured and killed in Sirte. 45669.jpegLibyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was wounded and captured during the siege of the city of Sirte. The colonel was wounded in his legs, The Guardian reports.

Gaddafi was reportedly hiding in a dugout. When he saw the fighters of the National Transitional Council, he shouted: "Don't Shoot!" Other sources say that he was captured when a column of vehicles, in which he was leaving Sirte, was shelled by the Libyan rebels.

Officials said some of Gaddafi's entourage had been killed in the same incident, while his son Mo'tassim and other aides were taken prisoner, Reuters said.

According to Sky News, Gaddafi was hospitalized with serious injuries after the attack. The TV channel said that Libya's leader died of the wounds.

The Guardian published a photograph, which, supposedly, depicts the lethally wounded Gaddafi all covered with blood. A fighter of the National Transitional Council took the photo with his cell phone camera in Sirte, the newspaper said.

According to Interfax, Gaddafi could be killed when two NATO planes attacked the convoy of vehicles of the colonel's followers. Gadaffi suffered serious injuries and subsequently died as a result of the raid.

The Libyan TV rejected the information, though. The website of Al-Libya TV channel said that Colonel Muammar Gaddafi had not been captured. He is still alive and healthy, the website says. According to the channel, the photos of the killed colonel were fabricated.
