Gadhafi Burial, A military council official Misrata said Moammar Gadhafi, his son and a senior adviser Muatassim were buried at dawn on Tuesday in a secret place, with some relatives and officials present.
In a text message that is displayed to the Associated Press, said spokesman Ibrahim Beitalmal Islamic prayers were read over the bodies. The information could not be independently verified.
The bodies of Gadhafi, his son Muatassim, and former defense minister, Abu Bakr Yunis had been held in cold storage in the port city of Misrata since dictator and members of his entourage were captured near his hometown of Sirte on Thursday. Gaddafi and Muatassim were taken alive, with some injuries, but died in unclear circumstances, later that day.
Libya’s interim leaders have promised an investigation, in response to growing international pressure.
On Monday, Beitalmal had told the three would be buried in mass graves in secret to prevent vandalism. Probably, the tombs are also kept hidden to avoid becoming sanctuaries for supporters of Gaddafi.
International organizations asking to see the burial site would have access Beitalmal said.
Over the weekend, the Libyan chief pathologist, Dr. Othman el-Zentani performed autopsies on the three bodies and also took DNA samples to confirm their identity. El-Gaddafi Zentani said was shot in the head, and said the full report will be published later this week, after he presented his findings to the Attorney General.
It remains unclear exactly when the fatal injury suffered Gaddafi – before being arrested or after being captured by the revolutionary fighters.
