Former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi died of wounds suffered in his capture near his hometown of Sirte on Thursday, a senior NTC military official said.

National Transitional Council official Abdel Majid Mlegta told Reuters earlier that Gaddafi was captured and wounded in both legs at dawn on Thursday as he tried to flee in a convoy which NATO warplanes attacked.

"He was also hit in his head," the official said. "There was a lot of firing against his group and he died."

There was no independent confirmation of his remarks. (Reuters)

    All Western leaders were caught naked in this instance, jumping to praise so called liberation of Libiya when muder of tyrrantwas obvious.

    cha Saturday, 22 October 2011 01:07 PM

    As much as I want to say yay to NATO, the Libyan people did this and they fought and died for what they believed in

    Cy Alwis Saturday, 22 October 2011 01:22 PM

    Defeat for human rights,integrity,and peace and harmony of a country of prosperity. Another lesson if you don't obey cow boys hegemony over the world. Only Arab leaders have to pay their lives. New world order.

    Rajeev Patnaik Saturday, 22 October 2011 11:04 PM

    The US never lost its vision or pardon its commitment in wiping out the Islamic terror.Recent times, it shook Iraq, Egypt, Syria,and Now Libya.It should go ahead and wipe out Islamic fanatics in Pakistan and Afghan with out losing further time.It is also a very good lesson for power thirsty .dictators all over the world.Make is world as a livable place for only decent individuals

    Tintin Saturday, 22 October 2011 11:08 PM

    It is a very good lesson to anyone who aspires to rule indefinitely. Must die like a rat.

    Udaya amarasekera Sunday, 23 October 2011 12:18 AM

    Dear readers and viewers of the brutal article of barberick act of slaughter of former depose Libyan leader. Folks he may have been a brutal and murderous dictator but the mob who overturn the regime with NATO, US and superpowers should be shamed to witness the footages of repeat public assault claimed to have been gardarfis general practice. Regrettably history will repeat at some point no matter who does what and what's goes around will definitely will come around. I wish all intelligent citizens of Libya good luck and bright haterence free future

    V Friday, 21 October 2011 01:14 AM

    Hope Libya will not be another hard core Islam Country !

    Reality Friday, 21 October 2011 01:03 AM

    First the news that NATO had bombed a convoy carrying Gaddafi who was possibly trying to flee or surrender. Next the rebel commanders stated that he was wounded and they had him in an ambulance on its way to hospital. Now the news is he was captured alive and then shot arriving at the hospital dead. Are NATO and their ground fighters guilty of war crimes? When will there be an investigation by whom and of whom - interesting questions which require answers.

    Good News to everyone.
