Just today, Libyan National Transitional Council claimed to have captured Colonel Gadaffi in Sirte, and after a few minutes have released a new update that Muammar Gadaffi died from his wounds.
A news agency originally reported that Gaddafi was captured but was still alive.
“He’s [Gadaffi] captured. He’s wounded in both legs … He’s been taken away by ambulance,” the senior NTC military official Abdel Majid told Reuters by telephone. However this was later updated, saying that he had died of his wounds.
The United States department have not yet confirmed the media reports of Gadaffi’s alleged capture or death.
Update: Colonel Gadaffi is dead. Gruesome photos have surfaced yesterday after the official statement of the NTC.
