Gaddafi is said to have died of gunshot wounds that he sustained during his capture.
A video was released of a dead body covered in blood – and an NTC official said he could confirm the man in the footage was gaddafi.
Certain reports said that he had been shot in the legs, the side of his torso and his head.
The former dictator had supposedly been found unconscious in a culvert under a house in Sirte and died on the way to hospital.
Graffiti was painted over the water channel saying “this is the place where the rat Gaddafi was hiding. Contemptible Gaddafi”
Gaddafi’s bloody body was loaded on top of a vehicle and taken to Misrata, a city that was besieged for months by his forces.
A large crowd surrounding the vehicle chanted ” The blood of the martyrs will not go in vain. ”
