The oppressive Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi has been killed during fighting in his hometown of Sirte on October 20, confirmed by Libyan Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril.
Gadaffi’s death came only hours after Libyan fighters took control of Sirte early Thursday. His death marks the first of a major leader in the series of Arab uprising that took place earlier this year.
It was undetermined if Gadaffi, who suffered injuries to the legs and head, was killed in a Nato air strike or in combat on the ground. He was alive when captured, but died in an ambulance being led out of the city.
