Former Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi was killed in his home town of Sirte on Thursday, reports suggest.

According to reports, Gadhafi was hiding in a bunker with his head of security when they were attacked by National Transitional Council (NTC) fighters. Both of them were killed in the strike.

He (Gadhafi) was also hit in his head, National Transitional Council official Abdel Majid Mlegta told Reuters. There was a lot of firing against his group and he died.

An anti-Gadhafi fighter said the ousted ruler had been found hiding in a hole in the ground and had said Don't shoot, don't shoot to the men who grabbed him.

His capture followed within minutes of the fall of Sirte, a development that extinguished the last significant resistance by forces loyal to the deposed leader, Reuters reported.
