Now reported by Reuters that he's died of his wounds. Gadaffi didn't duck.

I have mixed feelings if he's dead as I'd have liked to have seen him face justice for his crimes at the International Criminal Court. Having said that, it's difficult to see how you could have any sort of trial when everyone knows he was responsible for some of the most heinous crimes in recent history.

Still, it's been a good couple of days for scum-bashing. :thumbsup:

I think it would have been more appropriate that he would be tried by the Libyan people.

True, but the spectacle of a show trial a la Saddam would not have been pleasant either. I do not agree with summary justice but any trial in Libya would only end the same way. Ultimately, he got what was coming to him.

What do we think about the photo being shown?

A step too far or 'proof' his terror is really over?

I'm not sure I wanted to see it really...

The photos had to be shown for absolute proof he was dead

The latest rumours are that rather than being killed by a NATO airstrike he was captured alive by the NTC and dragged through the streets of Sirte being kicked and punched before being executed by an as yet unknown assailant

Makes you wonder why he never took the opportunity to flee to South America or a friendly African neighbour when he had the chance. Surely he wasn't deluded enough to think this day wouldn't come once the rebels approached Trippoli.

He said he'd die a martyrs death in his beloved Libya .. apparently he was found hiding (ala Saddam Hussein) in a sewage overflow pipe which i don't find particularly heroic if truth be told
