Sirte falls and Gaddafi killed


The end of the civil war in Libya is now very close to an end. Bani Walid was captured by pro National Transitional Council (NTC) forces yesterday. Sirte was finally captured today. Muammar Gaddafi was killed, apparently trying to flee from Sirte.

Gaddafi’s son Mutasim (full name Al-Mu’tasim-Billah al-Gaddafi) has, apparently, been killed as well, but Saif al-Islam, another son, is reported as fleeing with NTC troops in pursuit.
