Contrary to what we’ll hear in all the acreage of news to follow, there are some Libyans who aren’t celebrating his death. Many are concerned at the number of Islamists and al-Qaeda members in the National Transitional Council. We’ll see. The only thing for sure is that Britain will be pouring yet more aid, in one form or another, into the country. Oh, there is one other certainty: the overwhelming majority of Libyans who have been given refuge in this country over the years will not bother going back home to create a better country.
PS First reports said he was shot in the legs; the second said “and also in the head”. The pic above has been confirmed as authentic.
UPDATE: First reports indicated that the convoy he was travelling in was hit by NATO bombs, that he was found, with others, hiding inside a pipe, a fight ensued and he was captured alive. It’s all very muddled, as you’d expect. Second report said said he was found in a house by NTC ‘troops’ and was killed a firefight. I guess this is one of those things where we’ll never know the truth. All I know is that if Gaddafi had been captured alive and sent to trial, it would have been very embarrassing for certain people.
