Thousands of Libyans attended today's funeral of Saif Al-Arab Gaddafi, the youngest son of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, who was killed after air strikes by coalition forces last Saturday together with his 3 children (grandchildren of Gaddafi). The funeral took place at the El hani cemetery in Tripoli on Monday, May 2, 2011.

Crowds gathered at other places in Tripoli as well and were chanting Muammar Gaddafi's name. The NATO airstrike that aimed to kill Muammar Gaddafi and his family directly, and has therefore nothing to do with the no-fly-zone that is mandated by the U.N., raised new questions about the role of Western powers in the uprising against the Libyan leader.
