Moammar Gadhafi was reportedly killed in Sirte, Libya on Thursday, and video of his death has been released by al-Jazeera.
The graphic footage, accompanied by a number of cellphone photos (found here and here), show Gadhafi being dragged from what the National Transitional Council has called a hole in Sirte, the final city to be captured by the revolutionary force.
Gadhafi reportedly died from injuries sustained in the battle, including gunshot wounds to the legs and head. The video of Gadhafi being dragged around NTC fighters' feet will assuredly become one of the most memorable images of the Libyan revolution for years to come.
He's wounded in both legs... He's been taken away by ambulance, the NTC's Abdel Majid Mlegta told Reuters Thursday morning.
He was also hit in his head, the official said. There was a lot of firing against his group and he died.
Gadhafi's military chief Abu Bakr Younus Jabr was also killed in Sirte, and his spokesperson Moussa Ibrahim has been captured. Gadhafi's son, Mutassim Gadhafi, has also been killed, a NTC senior official said. His brother, Saif al-Islam Gadhafi, is still missing.
Moammar Gadhafi's son Saif al-Islam is believed to be still at large in Libya's desert, Reuters reported Thursday. Saif al-Islam... was last known to have been in the area of Bani Walid and was believed to be 'in the desert' around the town.
Saif al-Islam is wanted by the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity. The Hague alleges that Saif al-Islam, along with his father, ordered troops to shoot unarmed protestors.
Libyans took to the streets to celebrate, and sound of honking car horns and guns being fired into the air resound throughout Tripoli.
Gadhafi's capture and death in Sirte proves one thing -- that Gadhafi made good on at least one of his promises. The former Libyan leader repeatedly vowed that he'd never flee the country, saying he'd rather die or be martyred than run from his homeland. Despite members of his family, cabinet and army escaping to other African countries, it appears that Gadhafi never left.
