Libya Official Says Gadhafi Is Dead

Deposed Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi died of wounds suffered in his capture near his hometown of Sirte on Thursday, according to a senior National Transitional Council military official and a government minister. The military official, Abdel Majid Mlegta, had told Reuters earlier that Gadhafi was captured and wounded in both legs at dawn on Thursday as he tried to flee in a convoy which NATO warplanes had attacked.

“He was also hit in his head,” said Mlegta. “There was a lot of firing against his group and he died.”

Rebels also said they had captured Gadhafi’s son, Mo’tassim, alive in Sirte, Arab news channels Al Jazeera TV and Al-Arabiya reported.

Asked if there was photographic evidence to prove that Gadhafi was dead, Mlegta said: “We have the footage but it is not available now.”

However, AFP news agency provided a photograph that appeared to show a wounded or dead Gadhafi. The image has not been independently verified.
