Libya’s National Transitioal Council Reports That Gadhafi is Dead


WASHINGTON—(ENEWSPF)—October 20, 2011.  CNN news is reporting that Libya’s National Transitional Council announced that deposed Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi has been either captured or killed.  No official confirmation has yet been provided by either the White House or State Department.

However, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, whose country took part in the NATO-led air operation in Libya, said Gadhafi was in custody. “My assistant has just told me that Gadhafi really has been captured,” Rutte said during a visit to Moscow. “I am glad that he has been captured.”

Mahmoud Shamman, Libya’s information minister, tells CNN that a press conference will be happening soon about the alleged death of Gadhafi.
