Gaddafi 'killed with his own golden gun


MUMMAR Gaddafi was killed with his favorite golden pistol, a witness said, as Libya's new rulers argued over what do with the former dictator's remains and a key henchman appeared to escape.

Gaddafi was carrying the golden pistol when he was captured by Transitional National Council (TNC) fighters in a sewage pipe outside his hometown of Sirte on Thursday, following a NATO airstrike on his convoy, an official told The (London) Times.

"Gaddafi was first captured by rebels from the east," the source said. "Then the Misrata group showed up to take him. The eastern rebels didn't like this and the soldier pulled Ghadafi's golden gun and shot him, telling the Misrata guys, 'You can have him now'."

The source hailed the young man who killed Gaddafi a "Libyan hero," adding, "We know who killed him. He's a Libyan citizen, so we'll protect him. He was under-age, so he can't go to court anyway."
