Muammar Gaddafi captured and killed in Sirte
Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was wounded and captured during the siege of the city of Sirte. The colonel was wounded in his legs, The Guardian reports.
Gaddafi was reportedly hiding in a dugout. When he saw the fighters of the National Transitional Council, he shouted: "Don't Shoot!" Other sources say that he was captured when a column of vehicles, in which he was leaving Sirte, was shelled by the Libyan rebels.
Officials said some of Gaddafi's entourage had been killed in the same incident, while his son Mo'tassim and other aides were taken prisoner, Reuters said.
According to Sky News, Gaddafi was hospitalized with serious injuries after the attack. The TV channel said that Libya's leader died of the wounds.
The Guardian published a photograph, which, supposedly, depicts the lethally wounded Gaddafi all covered with blood. A fighter of the National Transitional Council took the photo with his cell phone camera in Sirte, the newspaper said.
According to Interfax, Gaddafi could have been killed when two NATO planes attacked the convoy of vehicles of the colonel's followers. Gadaffi suffered serious injuries and subsequently died as a result of the raid.
The Libyan TV rejected the information, though. The website of Al-Libya TV channel said that Colonel Muammar Gaddafi had not been captured. He is still alive and healthy, the website says. According to the channel, the photos of the killed colonel were fabricated.

NATO launches air raids in Sirte on Thursday: spokesman
BRUSSELS: NATO aircraft struck two military vehicles on Thursday as they fled Gaddafi's hometown of Sirte, a NATO spokesman said.
"At approximately 0830 local time (GMT0630) today, NATO aircraft struck two pro-Qadhafi forces military vehicles which were part of a larger group maneuvering in the vicinity of Sirte," said Colonel Roland Lavoie, spokesman for NATO's Libyan mission.
The spokesman didn't say whether Gaddafi was in the convoy or not.
A commander of the Libya NTC (National Transitional Council) said Gaddafi has been killed when an air strike hit a convoy trying to flee Sirte.
However, NATO didn't confirm the media report that Gaddafi was captured or killed.
A NATO official told Xinhua that it is up to the NTC to confirm the alleged capture of Gaddafi, not the military alliance.
Rumours of Muammar Qaddafi Spread by NTC for Hillary Clinton
Muammar Qaddafi's ''capture'' denied by Green Charter Movement in Jamahiriya
Rumours are circulating with once again European and American leaders misinforming the public, and the usual media culprits Al-Jazeera and Al-Arabia broadcasting the occupation NTC (National Terrorist Council) claim of the capture or death of Muammar Qaddafi.
Green Committees have confirmed that the leader is alive, and that the enemy is seeking to take advantage of his being currently out of communications. The aim is to please Hillary Clinton who barked at her Arab slaves that she wants Muammar Qaddafi "dead or alive."
The analysts who are close to the Libyan leader have told Mathaba that the aim of the rumours is several fold. On the one hand, they wish to demoralize the Libyan resistance which has held out for over 7 months against the strongest terrorists and invading armies in the world. On the other hand, they wish to thus lure the Leader out to make a call in order to attempt to get a fix on his location.
The Secretary-General of the International People's Conference Organization told Mathaba that there is also another aim in this strategy of Clinton and her minions, which is to attempt to perpetuate the myth that the NTC controls all of Libya and that the Jamahiriya is no more, because the NTC has made it clear they cannot declare a government unless they control the entire country.
NATO, the American-European armed forces, primarily cowardly Air Forces which have been bombing Libya non-stop since March this year, and special ground forces and foreign terrorists, have killed an estimated 60,000 Libyans thus far, but the Libyan Jamahiriya remains the only legitimate government because it rests squarely upon the Libyan people.
The IPCO Secretary-General said "Clinton wishes to lay her hands on the over 100 billion dollars of Libyan Jamahiriya assets which have been frozen. She cannot do so legally nor hand over any of those funds on any legal footing so long as the Jamahiriya continues to exist. And it does continue to exist, because it consists of over 6,000 basic people's conferences.
"The fact that the basic people's conferences could not convene at least twice a year as usual this year, has been because of the heavy NATO bombing and lack of security for the public to gather in their conference halls. However, in other countries around the world, elections take place only every 4, 5 or even 7 years, not several times a year as in the Jamahiriya, so the existing policies and legislation remain in force, as well as the existing authorities, until such time as the masses can convene again", the Secretary-General said.
Mathaba Libya news editor said that NATO and Clinton are desperate to show a "victory" in Libya, by way of a compliant media, and the NTC is anxious to provide that "victory" for their masters, in order to secure further support. The NTC leaders and their factions are all fighting amongst each other, and are dissatisfied with the spoils, which so far have not been forthcoming due to the armed population putting up a fierce resistance, and the globalist bankers being unable to keep their promises to the Libyan traitors.
Libyans should continue their mass green demonstrations and resistance, and ignore all rumours, as it has been confirmed that Mu'ammar Qaddafi is alive and well and will not be in communications currently for security reasons. One of the main aims of Clinton has been to kill or capture Qaddafi, or otherwise force him to leave Libya, and none of those aims will be granted her.
