Rebels celebrate Gaddafi’s capture (01:56)

SIRTE, Libya | Thu Oct 20, 2011 9:09am EDT

(Reuters) - Former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi died of wounds suffered on Thursday as fighters battling to complete an eight-month-old uprising against his rule overran his hometown Sirte, Libya’s interim rulers said.

His killing, which came swiftly after his capture near Sirte, is the most dramatic single development in the Arab Spring revolts that have unseated rulers in Egypt and Tunisia and threatened the grip on power of the leaders of Syria and Yemen.

“He (Gaddafi) was also hit in his head,” National Transitional Council official Abdel Majid Mlegta told Reuters. “There was a lot of firing against his group and he died.”

Mlegta told Reuters earlier that Gaddafi, who was in his late 60s, was captured and wounded in both legs at dawn on Thursday as he tried to flee in a convoy which NATO warplanes attacked. He said he had been taken away by an ambulance.

There was no independent confirmation of his remarks.

An anti-Gaddafi fighter said Gaddafi had been found hiding in a hole in the ground and had said “Don’t shoot, don’t shoot” to the men who grabbed him.

His capture followed within minutes of the fall of Sirte, a development that extinguished the last significant resistance by forces loyal to the deposed leader.

The capture of Sirte and the death of Gaddafi means Libya’s ruling NTC should now begin the task of forging a new democratic system which it had said it would get under way after the city, built as a showpiece for Gaddafi’s rule, had fallen.

Gaddafi, wanted by the International Criminal Court on charges of ordering the killing of civilians, was toppled by rebel forces on August 23 after 42 years of one-man rule over the oil-producing North African state.

NTC fighters hoisted the red, black and green national flag above a large utilities building in the center of a newly-captured Sirte neighborhood and celebratory gunfire broke out among their ecstatic and relieved comrades.

Hundreds of NTC troops had surrounded the Mediterranean coastal town for weeks in a chaotic struggle that killed and wounded scores of the besieging forces and an unknown number of defenders.

NTC fighters said there were a large number of corpses inside the last redoubts of the Gaddafi troops. It was not immediately possible to verify that information.

era uma jóia de moço…

Desfecho previsível e muito dirão merecido, nomeadamente os que vivam na Líbia e os que perderam parentes à custa dele!

Acredito que não vá deixar saudades.

Parece que um dos filhos também foi morto.

Ai o homem já está morto?

Nas notícias tinham dito que tinha levado tiros nas pernas, mas que tinha sido preso.

Façam é o favor de esvaziar as muitas contas dele e dos seus, de vários milhares de milhões de euros surripiados ao povo líbio, e depositar os valores nos cofres do estado Líbio.

Acabaram-se as tendas!

A fortuna do menino pagava a nossa divida externa…

Peanuts!!!

Foi o que eu tinha lido também…está morto? Azar do caraças…também já morreram muitos á conta dele.

Boa viagem. :arrow:

Adeus. Não faz falta nenhuma. Ele e outros que tais. Venha o próximo. :arrow:

Oda-se isso é que não pá :mrgreen: :lol: :hand:

Só acho que as televisões não deviam mostrar as agressões e os corpos. Já a cena do sadam e do savimbi critiquei. Tornou-se tão barato mostrar violência na tv. Já nem há horários, a qualquer hora passam o que lhes der na gana…

Ou vá o próximo… :rotfl: :stuck_out_tongue:

:rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

Agora deviam matar… a fome, pelo mundo fora! Em vez de gastarem dinheiro em armamentos e em “jogos” de poder, isso é que era atitude. Mas isso só em sonhos ou visões.

Morreu um, ainda faltam tantos…

Ali ainda está vivo, mas o que não falta por aí são imagens do homem já cadáver.

Que pena :whistle:

mais um que já foi… aos poucos, eles vão-se todos embora :great:

Menos 1…

Não deixa saudades.

Boa estadia no inferno.
