"Moammar Gaddafi, ruler of Libya for 42 years until his recent overthrow by NATO forces and indigenous rebels, has been killed outside his home town of Sirte. Gaddafi was captured by National Transitional Council fighters after his convoy was attacked by NATO aircraft and he took refuge in a drain pipe. Accounts of his death -- whether he was killed while resisting capture, during a subsequent firefight between NTC and loyalist forces, or simply executed after surrendering -- conflict." (10/20/11)
