Libya - Daily Nation reports that former Libyan leader Muammar Gadaffi was killed on Thursday, by new regime forces in his hometown of Sirte, after his convoy was attacked by Nato jets.

The National Transitional Council spokesman Abdel Hafez Ghoga announced to the world that Gadaffi has died in the custody of the revolution and that it is a historic moment as it is the end of tyranny and dictatorship.
Ghoga added that the fugitive despot’s death had been confirmed by our commanders on the ground in Sirte, those who captured him after he had been wounded in the battle for Sirte.
