The bodies of ex-Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, his son Mutassim and a top aide have been buried in secret in the desert, Libyan officials say.
A National Transitional Council (NTC) official told the BBC the bodies were buried at dawn in an unknown location.
This follows days of apparent uncertainty among the new leadership about what to do with the bodies.
Gaddafi’s family wanted them buried outside the former leader’s hometown of Sirte.
NTC leaders had expressed a preference for a secret burial.
Officials have given few details of the ceremony.
They say it took place early today. A few relatives and officials were in attendance and Islamic prayers were read. (BBC)
