Good riddance Mr Gaddafi?

It’s not clear exactly what may have happened, but there are increasingly reliable sounding reports that Muammar Gaddafi has gone into that sweet goodnight:

AFP news agency quoted another NTC official, Mohamed Leith, as saying that Col Gaddafi had been captured in Sirte and was “seriously wounded” but still breathing. A soldier who says he captured Muammar Gaddafi told the BBC the colonel had shouted: “Don’t shoot!” But NTC official Abdel Majid Mlegta told Reuters news agency that the former leader had been shot in the head and killed as he tried to flee.

Hashtags seemed to be #Gadhafi and of course #Libya and #BreakingNews. Al Arabiya English has tweeted they’re being allowed to photograph the body and will have more soon.
