Muammar Gaddafi dead: Former Libyan dictator found hiding in a sewer waving a golden gun
Former Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi was found hiding in a drainage culvert waving a golden gun as he tried to flee National Transitional Council fighters who had overran his hometown and final bastion on Thursday.

According to various sources, the former Libyan dictator may have tried to break out of his final redoubt at dawn in a convoy of vehicles after weeks of dogged resistance.

However, he was stopped by a NATO airstrike and captured, possibly three or four hours later, after gunbattles with NTC fighters who found him hiding in a drainage culvert.

Moments later, his bloodied body was stripped and displayed around the world from cellphone video. (Photo: Thaier al-Sudani/Reuters)

Fittingly brutal?
