UN: Probe into Gaddafi’s death

Social Share

A post-mortem examination on the body of Libya’s ex-leader Muammar Gaddafi has been performed in Misrata, an official told the BBC.
He said the body would be handed over to relatives. The burial has been delayed, with officials divided about what to do with the body.
The UN and the family have called for a full investigation into his death.
Video footage showed Col Gaddafi alive after his capture in Sirte on Thursday, and then dead a short time later.
The US has called on Libya’s new authorities to give a full account of Col Gaddafi’s death in an “open and transparent manner”.
Libya’s National Transitional Council (NTC) is expected to formally announce the liberation of the country during the weekend.
The first elections should take place by next June, Libya’s acting prime minister has said. (BBC)
