Forty-five minutes later, Abdel Madjid Melekta, commander of the Libyan interim government, announced the unthinkable. The man who ruled Libya for more than 42 years has now been captured by rebels. Officer Muammar Gaddafi was seriously injured. The Libyan leader tried to leave the city in a parade of vehicles. The convoy is said to have been bombed by the air force.
Shooting, bombing, murder or brief execution?
This is 13:55. The same commander, Abdel Madjit Melekta, announced the former “Guide the Revolution” Libya was wounded in the bombing.
Mahmoud Jibril, second on CNT, is launching another edition. Muammar Gaddafi was wounded in a gun battle while attempting to resist forces of the National Transitional Council. Muammar Gaddafi and his bodyguards had taken refuge in the sewers, and their convoy was blocked by a water drain tunnel under the road. He was later captured and disarmed by CNT militants.
Shortly afterwards, the Agency France-Presse published a photo of Gaddafi with a gunshot wound to the face and his face was found to be bloody but alive. Al-Arabia Channel Broadcasts the first pictures of his body. At the same time, one of Muammar Gaddafi’s sons, Modassem Gaddafi, was captured in Sirte.

Did Muammar Gaddafi die during the shooting and bombing of CNT militants, or was he the victim of a brief execution?
The exact course of the circumstances of his death is not clear. To date, there is no certainty. Facing conflicting versions of the circumstances of his death, several international organizations, including his widow and the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, are calling for an investigation.
Because if the Libyan authorities caused the death during the gun battle, many witnesses are talking about a brief execution.
On October 21, 2011, her body and the body of her son Modasem were displayed in a cold room in a market in Misrata. Thousands of Libyans gathered to see the two bodies. Two days later, a CNT official announced that his body would be handed over to his relatives, but ten years later his family did not know where his body lay.
