Investigation Possible Into Gadhafi Death

Ad Feedback

Moammar Gadhafi's burial has been postponed as calls rise for an investigation into the circumstances of his death.

Amateur video showing the Libyan dictator being caught by rebel fighters surfaced Friday.

Although clearly injured, Gadhafi is still alive during the video.

His captors can be heard shouting, "Don't kill him! Don't kill him! We need him alive!" throughout the footage.

Within an hour, Gadhafi was dead.

The final hunt for the disgraced leader began Thursday morning in his hometown of Sirte.

Rebels attacked buildings where the former libyan leader was believed to be hiding.

In the chaos to follow, they found Gadhafi hiding in a drainage pipe.

After being shot, Gadhafi was dragged off to an ambulance.

A doctor who rode in the ambulance with Gadhafi said he died from bullet wounds to his head and chest.

However, the U.N. Human Rights Council has called for an investigation into whether Gadhafi was killed from the fighting or executed after he was captured.

Libyan rebels had pledged to bring him to court to face atrocity charges.

"The death of Col. Gadhafi has brought to a close a very unfortunate chapter in Libya's history," U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said.

One of Gadhafi's sons, Muatassim, was also killed in Thursday's attack.

The fate of his son Seif al-Islam is still uncertain.

As a result of Gadhafi's death, NATO's top commander said he will recommend the end of the alliance's mission in Libya.
