More details on how your boy Moammar Gadhafi was murked in the streets of Libya:
Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi’s burial was delayed Friday after bloody images of his last moments raised questions over how exactly he died after being captured wounded, but alive. Video on Arab television stations showed a crowd of fighters shoving and pulling the goateed, balding Gadhafi, with blood splattered on his face and soaking his shirt after he was dragged from hiding in a drainage pipe, begging for his life.
Gadhafi struggled against them, stumbling and shouting as the fighters pushed him onto the hood of a pickup truck. One fighter held him down, pressing on his thigh with a pair of shoes in a show of contempt. Fighters propped him on the hood as they drove for several moments, apparently to parade him around in victory. “We want him alive. We want him alive,” one man shouted before Gadhafi was dragged off the hood, some fighters pulling his hair, toward an ambulance. According to a translation by Britain’s Sky News, Gadhafi yelled at the revolutionaries. “What you are doing is not allowed in Islamic law,” he reportedly said. “What you are doing is forbidden in Islam!”
Celebratory gunfire is heard in the video aired by Sky News and and at one point a gun is pointed at the dictator’s head. “Do you know right from wrong?” Gadhafi added on the video shortly before he appears to lose consciousness. “Shut up, dog,” one of the former rebels responded.
The video on Sky News later shows a dead Gadhafi being photographed and filmed in the street. Later footage showed fighters rolling Gadhafi’s lifeless body over on the pavement, stripped to the waist and a pool of blood under his head. His body was then paraded on a car through Misrata, a nearby city that suffered a brutal siege by regime forces during the eight-month civil war that eventually ousted Gadhafi, as crowds in the streets cheered.

The United Nations human rights office called on Friday for a full investigation into Gadhafi’s death. “It is unclear how he died. There is a need for an investigation,” U.N. human rights spokesman Rupert Colville told reporters in Geneva.
“It is a fundamental principle of international law that people accused of serious crimes should if possible be tried. Summary executions are strictly illegal. It is different if someone is killed in combat,” he added.
Referring to separate cell phone images showing a wounded Gadhafi first alive and then later dead amidst a jumble of anti-Gadhafi fighters after his capture in his hometown of Sirte on Thursday, he added: “Taken together, they were very disturbing.”
