Libya’s former leader Moammar Gadhafi has been killed, but apparently he was captured alive before he expired.

From AP:

SIRTE, Libya (AP) — Arab satellite TV stations have broadcast a video showing Moammar Gadhafi captured alive by revolutionary forces.

The video shows a wounded Gadhafi with a blood-soaked shirt and bloodied face leaning up against the hood of a truck and restrained by fighters. They then push him toward another car, as he shouts and struggles against them.

Al Jazeera has posted what it says is the video. The images are graphic and may be disturbing to some.
