Gaddafi’s youngest son allegedly ’dies from wounds’ a year to the day of his father’s death
By Simon Tomlinson | SotT.net
The youngest son of Colonel Gaddafi has reportedly been killed during fighting a year to the day after the former Libyan leader’s death.
There are conflicting accounts about whether Khamis Gaddafi was killed during conflict or fatally wounded and later died.
Libyan national congress spokesman, Omar Hamdan, said the 28-year-old died ’in battle’ but gave no further details.
Conflicting reports: Colonel Gaddafi’s youngest son, Khamis (pictured), has allegedly been killed, but accounts of exactly how he is said to have died are confusing. He has been reported dead several times before.
His body is said to have been found yesterday after fierce fighting between pro-Gaddafi forces and militias allied to the Libyan government in the town of Bani Walid.
The Al Arabiya news agency, however, has been cited on NBC News as saying that sources claim Khamis Gaddafi was found seriously injured, arrested and later died.
There have been several reports in the past that he has been killed, including during a NATO airstrike in August 2011.
Government forces claimed 13 people were killed and 121 wounded on a fourth day of bitter clashes for control of the town.
Reports of his death brought scenes of wild celebrations in Misrata, the city which had been under siege for six months by Khamis’s 32nd Brigade.
It is believed his body was being brought to the city, the third largest in Libya, as his father’s corpse had been after he was killed by rebels on October 20 last year.
Earlier in the day, he Libyan government that its forces had detained Gaddafi’s high-profile spokesman Moussa Ibrahim, but an online recording from a man purporting to be Ibrahim denied that claim and said he wasn’t even in the country.
