Gaddafi Buried in Secret Location
After a source in Libya's ruling interim council, quoted by al-Jazeera, says Muammar Gaddafi has been buried in a secret desert grave, residents of Tripoli react to the news.
[Massud Ali, Tripoli Resident]:
"In my opinion, we acted in accordance to the fatwa of the Mufti of Libya, so I bless this act."
Few people seemed bothered by how Gaddafi was killed or why his corpse was displayed for so long in a Misrata cold store.
[Khamis Atiyeh, Tripoli Resident];
"They should have hanged him on the bridge on the way to the airport, not bury him. They should have hanged him on the bridge. What do you mean why? He was the biggest tyrant in this country. Why? He was the biggest tyrant in the world. He was shameful."
Speaking from Benghazi, the Libyan Minister of Information said it was no surprise Gaddafi was killed as soon as he was captured.
[Mahmoud Shamman, Libyan Minister of Information]:
"He killed young men and described them as rats, he launched Grad missiles against them, aircrafts bombed them and tanks shelled them. He killed their comrades which resulted in 20,000 martyrs, he raped their women. What else do you think they would do to Gaddafi if he was captured at their hands?"
An NTC official told Reuters that there would be only four witnesses to Gaddafi's burial, who would swear on the Koran never to reveal the location - ensuring the anonymous plot cannot become a shrine to the deposed leader.
