Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril of the National Transitional Council informed reporters in Tripoli today that Gaddafi, hated former dictator of Libya, had been killed in action near his hometown of Sirte. Gaddafi was allegedly shot in the head in a drainage ditch while begging for his life. Video of the felled dictator being dragged through the streets is now widely available (Caution: Graphic Footage) on the internet and is quite ghoulish at that. Celebrations of Gaddafi’s death are taking place all over Libya and probably elsewhere in the world as the dictator’s victims were many. Gaddafi’s son Mutassim was also killed in Sirte while Gaddafi’s other son, Saif al-Islam, is on the run and left Sirte with a convoy prior to the attack. Proving once again that reality often writes better tales than any author, Gaddafi was killed holding a golden gun according to the NTC soldier who found him and shot him. It is hoped that the events of late culminate in a reformed and democratic Libya, though what shape Libya may take in terms of government is not yet known.
