GADDAFI DEAD - The Truth About Libya,
Documentary
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
COLONEL
Gaddafi was killed — after being captured clutching a golden gun.


The Mad Dog dictator was paraded through the streets in Libya beaten and
bloodied after being found cowering in a hole.

He was hunted down as he
attempted to flee his hometown of Sirte in a convoy of 80 jeeps.

A Nato
airstrike on the vehicles left them badly damaged, but not destroyed, and an
injured Gaddafi managed to crawl away to hide inside a storm drain.

The
attack allowed the rebel forces on the ground to close in on him.


Fighter Mohammed al-Bibi said he discovered the tyrant hiding in the
large concrete pipe brandishing the golden
pistol.




Pleaded


The rebel, in his 20s, told
reporters that Gaddafi had pleaded "Don't shoot, don't shoot" as he attempted to
surrender.

Grainy video footage released later apparently showed the
69-year-old former leader alive and slumped on the back of a pickup truck
surrounded by rebel fighters.

Despite his serious injuries, he appears
just about able to stand as the revolutionaries pull him off the vehicle, before
dragging him around the streets.

He is also seen trying to talk to his
captors as they jeer and chant around him.

It has been suggested he was
later shot in an execution-style killing.
