Gaddafi dead???? Reports say he is

According to Reuters, ousted Libyan dictator Colonel Muammar Gaddafi has been captured by Libya’s National Transitional Council. According to the report, National Transitional Council official Abdel Majid told Reuters’ Samia Nakhoul that “He’s captured. He’s wounded in both legs … He’s been taken away by ambulance.”

Later, Reuters reported that Gaddafi had died of his wounds.

Gaddafi has been at large since the fall of Tripoli in August that saw Libyan rebels end the 42 year reign of the dictator, but was finally captured as the rebel forces took Gaddafi’s hometown of Sirte. At this time, the US State Department has not confirmed Gaddafi’s capture or killing. According to the BBC, the dictator shouted, “Don’t shoot!” as he was mortally wounded.

Gaddafi’s capture and reported killing comes almost eight months to the day after President Obama publicly called for his ouster.

Death is still unconfirmed, but Libya is is complete celebration!
