Gadhafi, 69, was killed on Thursday after being captured by the Libyan fighters he once scorned as “rats”, who overran his last bastion of resistance in his hometown, Sirte — the culmination of an eight-month uprising against his 42-year rule.

“Gadhafi was arrested while he was alive but he was killed later. There was a bullet and that was the primary reason for his death, it penetrated his gut,” doctor Ibrahim Tika told Al Arabiya television. “Then there was another bullet in the head that went in and out of his head.”

Earlier, Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril, reading what he said was a post-mortem report, said Gadhafi was hauled unresisting from a “sewage pipe”, shot in the arm and put in a truck which was “caught in crossfire” as it ferried him to hospital.
