" The former Libyan leader, who was killed Thursday while attempting to flee the city of Sirte, will be buried with her ​​son, Mouatassim, killed the same day under circumstances also disorders.

In his will, the "Guide" had asked to sit in Sirte, his hometown, but the leaders of the CNT wanted him buried in a secret location to prevent his grave became a place of pilgrimage for his followers.
Since Thursday, thousands of Libyans flocked to Misrata, north-west of Sirte, to see for themselves the body of the former leader, set up Monday night in a cold room.

A commission of inquiry into the death of the "Guide"

Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, chairman of the CNT, announced Monday the opening of an investigation into the death of Colonel , whose circumstances are the subject of conflicting reports.
Initially, government officials had estimated that he was killed during a shootout between his followers and the revolutionary forces. But Abdul-Jalil raised the possibility that the former strong man of Tripoli was shot by one of his relatives to prevent them involved in the atrocities committed by the regime. "Let us ask us to find out who was interested in what Gaddafi is not found? The Libyans wanted to try him for what he did to them, executions, imprisonment, corruption, "has listed the president of CNT. "The Libyans wanted to keep free Gaddafi in jail and humiliate him as long as possible.""Those who wanted to kill him were those who were faithful to him or who had played a part under him, his death is their advantage," commented Abdul-Jalil.
The United States has in turn asked the Libyan authorities Monday to investigate also alleged summary executions of fighters loyal to Muammar Gaddafi. The organization Human Rights Watch (HRW) has indeed said that 53 people, a priori supporters of the deposed president, had probably been summarily executed in a hotel in Sirte, the last bastion fell Thursday to be loyal to Libya.
As Seif el-Islam Gadhafi's son sought, it would be in the extreme south-western Libya, near the border with Algeria and Niger, where he would prepare his flight. "He has a false Libyan passport which was issued in the region of Mourzouk", told Reuters an official of the CNT. The flight would be prepared by the former head of intelligence, Abdullah al Senussi.
