Thursday, October 20, 2011

Libya's information minister says Moammar Gadhafi's son Muatassim has been killed in Sirte.

Information Minister Mahmoud Shammam told The Associated Press by telephone that Muatassim Gadhafi, his father's former national security adviser, was dead. The transitional government also said another Gadhafi son, his one-time heir apparent Seif al-Islam, was captured wounded by revolutionary fighters and is in a hospital.
