Confirmed: Former Libyan Dictator Muammar Qaddafi Killed (Warning: Graphic Video)

“Libyan strongman Muammar Qaddafi is dead, Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril has confirmed.

‘We have been waiting for this moment for a long time. Muammar Qaddafi has been killed,’ Jibril told a news conference in the capital Tripoli.

Qaddafi died of wounds suffered during his capture near his hometown of Sirte on Thursday, Reuters and Sky News reported. Libyan leaders have informed the United States that Qaddafi is dead, according to an unidentified U.S. official who said Libya’s National Transitional Council (NTC) is expected to officially announce his death soon. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the U.S. could independently confirm Qaddafi’s death.

‘Qaddafi is dead. He is absolutely dead … he was shot in both legs and in the head. The body will be arriving in Misrata soon,’ media spokesman Abdullah Berrassali told Sky News.

A man who claimed to have witnessed the attack told the Associated Press Television News that he struck Qaddafi with his shoes after he was shot.” Read more.

If he was killed by a shot to the head, it was after being captured alive, not ‘during his capture’ per above.  In the video below he was clearly alive when captured and not suffering from a ‘shot to the head’:

Update: Rebel forces executed him in front of a baying mob after capture – “Wounded, weakened and covered in blood and dirt, the fallen dictator was dragged from a truck to meet his unceremonious end. In front of a baying mob, Muammar Gaddafi, the former Libyan leader, begged the revolutionary soldiers for his life. Becoming increasingly desperate, he asked one rebel fighter: ‘What did I ever do to you?’ But his pleas fell on deaf ears. The deposed despot was mercilessly shot to death, his spilt blood heralding the end of a terrible 42-year epoch in Libyan history.” Read more.
