Gaddafi buried at secret location in Libya

The body of former Libyan dictator Muammar al-Gaddafi was buried at an unknown location today, according to National Transitional Council (NTC) officials.

The interim government forces had earlier put the body on show in a cold store in Misurata while they argued over what to do with it, until its decay forced them on Monday to end the display.

Gaddafi's son Mutassim is also thought to have been buried in the same ceremony.

According to the Telegraph, the ceremony was attended by a few relatives and officials.

Gaddafi was captured alive on October 20 and died soon after under unclear circumstances.

The 69-year-old and his family have been on the run since the rebel forces toppled his regime on August 23.

His 41-year rule prior to the uprising had made him the fourth longest-ruling non-royal leader since 1900, as well as the longest-ruling Arab leader.

He has variously styled himself as 'the Brother Leader', 'Guide of the Revolution', and the 'King of Kings'
