Following the capture of Muammar Gaddafi’s hometown of Sirte, contradictory reports suggest that Colonel Gaddafi may have been killed or captured in Libya.
Al Jazeera and Libyan state television are reporting that the Libyan dictator has been killed during a gunbattle in Sirte. A senior National Transitional Council official, Abdel Majid, told Reuters by telephone that Gaddafi has died of wounds suffered during his capture in Sirte. Reuters reports that he was wounded in both legs as he “tried to flee in a convoy which NATO warplanes attacked.”
