Muammar Gaddafi Dead Because Of NATO



Image taken from Arab Satellite TV, Al Jazeera shows the Libyan supremo, Muammar Gaddafi, dead in his hometown of Sirte. He was reportedly shot with his own Golden Gun by the anti-Gaddafi National Transition Council, NTC forces. The end of his 42 years rule as Libyan supreme leader.


This is the large drainage hole in Sirte where Gaddafi was said to be hiding, shortly before being captured.

Libya's 69 year old former leader, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi who ruled Libya with an iron fist for 42 years, is dead today, Thursday, 20th October 2011.

He was seen on Al Jazerra's TV, captured alive, but bloodied and badly injured, surrounded by National Transitional Council, NTC forces.

The brutal images, apparently recorded on cell-phones, shows the once invincible Libyan ruler, being dragged by heavily armed NTC forces onto a truck.

However, another video shows the Colonel, dead. His body being dragged across the road by NTC forces.

His death came after weeks of fierce fighting for Sirte, one of the last remaining pockets of resistance.

Nato, which has been running a bombing campaign in Libya for months, said it had carried out an air strike earlier on Thursday, 19th October 2011, that hit two pro-Gaddafi vehicles near Sirte.

It was unclear whether the strikes were connected with Col Gaddafi's death.

There are reports that another of Gaddafi's sons, Mutassim, was also killed in Sirte.

Proof of Colonel Gaddafi's fate came in grainy pieces of video, first circulated among NTC fighters and then broadcast by international news channels.

Meanwhile world leaders, welcomed the news.

British Prime Minister David Cameron, who had taken a leading role in Nato's intervention in Libya, said it was "a day to remember all of Colonel Gaddafi's victims".

United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon called it a "historic" moment, but warned: "The road ahead for Libya and its people will be difficult and full of challenges."

United States Secretary of State, Hilarry Clinton response was "ohhh... waww" when first informed of the news.
