Notorious Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi, who ruled Libya for over 40 years with an iron fist until he was ousted by his own people earlier this year, was killed early today in a surprise attack by insurgents in the town of Sirte, Libya.
69-year-old Gadhafi — one of the world’s most notorious tyrants, right along with Osama bin Laden — had been on the run for several weeks and was reportedly found hiding in a drain outside Sirte, where he and others had taken shelter after their convoy was hit by a NATO airstrike following an escape attempt.
Gaddafi 69, was reportedly found hiding in a drain outside Sirte, where he and and others had taken shelter after their convoy was hit by a Nato airstrike as it attempted to escape. Reports state that Gaddafi was alive when he was captured, but he died in an ambulance on the way to hospital.
According to The Telegraph, the soldier who claims to have found Gadhafi says the fallen leader cried, “Don’t shoot! Don’t shoot!” just before he was killed.
“He was also hit in his head,” official said. “There was a lot of firing against his group and he died.”
Proof that Gadhafi is officially dead was shown all over the media with graphic photos and video footage of his body, which was paraded through the streets of the nearby city of Misrata on top of a vehicle surrounded by a large crowd chanting.
