Libya's Muammar al-Quathafi, ruler since deposing King Idris Sanussi in a bloodless 1969 coup, was captured and summarily executed by the NATO-backed insurgents who in August took control of Tripoli, the Libyan capital. Quathafi who was shown wounded in videotaped images was later shot in the temple, Britain's Daily Mail, reports.

The insurgents also seized control of al-Quathafi's home city of Sirte after almost a month's shelling during which the city was destroyed. One of Muammar al-Quathafi's son, Mutassim, was also reported killed in the fighting, by various news agencies and Al-Jazeera.
