Muammar Qaddafi Is Dead [Graphic Video]
It is being reported that Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi has been killed.
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. [Fox]
When asked about the report, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton could NOT confirm that the Libyan tyrant was actually dead.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said her department was still attempting to confirm the reports.
“[We] can’t confirm Qaddafi’s capture or death but if it’s true, it’s a big sigh of relief,” Clinton told FOX News White House correspondent Wendell Goler, who is traveling with her in Pakistan. “One more obstacle removed but we still have a steep climb ahead.”
The Libyan leader was long thought of as a tyrant and it does not seem that the world will miss him. But, nature abhors a vacuum. And just because HE is gone, does not necessarily mean that things will get better for the people of Libya. Now that Qaddafi is gone, who or what will take his place?
