“We grabbed him, I hit him in the face. Some fighters wanted to take him away and that’s when I shot him twice, in the head and in the chest.”
Those are the words of the person claiming to be Gaddafi’s killer. He says his name is Senad el Sadık el Ureybi, and in the video he shows a ring and shirt he claimed belonged to the deceased Libyan leader, as reported by ynetnews.
The Associated Press is also reporting that under pressure from the international committee, the interim leaders of Libya have announced an investigation into Gaddafi’s killing.
Mustafa Abdul-Jalil told a news conference in the eastern city of Benghazi that the National Transitional Council has formed a committee to investigate Thursday’s killing amid conflicting reports of how the dictator who ruled Libya for 42 years died. Government officials have said initial findings suggest Gadhafi was killed in the crossfire as his supporters clashed with revolutionary forces seizing control of his hometown of Sirte.
