Colonel Muammhar Quaddhaffi is Dead

From the UK Daily Express:

 

Gaddafi was captured and wounded in both legs at dawn as he tried to flee in a convoy which NATO warplanes attacked, National Transitional Council official Abdel Majid Mlegta said.

“He was also hit in his head,” the official said. “There was a lot of firing against his group and he died.”

Gaddafi died of wounds near his home town, according to NTC officials

The Libyan dictator was wounded and captured near Sirte as he tried to flee in convoy after attacks, according to reports.

The U.S. State Department said it could not confirm that deposed Muammar Gaddafi has been captured.
“We’ve seen the media reports but can’t confirm them,” State Department spokeswoman Beth Gosselin.

Libyan fighters drove the last holdouts of Gaddafi out of his hometown of Sirte in a few hours of fierce gunbattles, then declared victory over the last major resistance two months after the fall of Tripoli.

The ecstatic former rebels celebrated by firing endless rounds into the sky, pumping their guns, knives and even a meat cleaver in the air and singing the national anthem.

 

This is great news for the Libyan people and the rest of the world. May he burn in hell.
