Colonel Muammar Gaddafi was buried early in the morning somewhere in the Libyan desert. The funeral service was conducted according to Muslim traditions. His son Mo'tassim was buried as well. The bodies of the colonel, his son and the former minister of defense were taken out of Misrata in an unknown direction.
The place of the location has not been exposed, Radio Svoboda said. The new authorities of the country fear that Gaddafi's followers may turn his grave into a worshipping site.
In the meantime, Gaddafi's another son, Saif al-Islam, prepares to flee abroad, Rosbalt reports. A spokesperson for the National Transitional Council of Libya said that Saif al-Islam was staying in the south of the country. He can escape to Algeria or Niger, the official said.
In the meantime, over 100 people were killed in an explosion, which ripped through the fuel storage facility in Sirte, Gaddafi's native town. The reasons of the explosion have not been explained yet.
