Rebels sodomised Gaddafi with combat knife
The rebels who captured Libyan dictator Moammar Gaddafi reportedly dragged him from a drainage pipe and tortured him with a knife
The rebels who captured Libyan dictator Moammar Gaddafi reportedly dragged him from a drainage pipe and tortured him with a knife.
Graphic footage released Monday by GlobalPost.com shows a rebel jabbing a helpless Gaddafi in the backside with what appears to be a U.S.-made combat knife called a BK&T -- and which the Libyans called a "Bicketti."
According to the New York Daily News, Gaddafi, who used rape to terrorise political opponents, appears bloodied and terrified. And screams in Arabic can be heard amid the vengeful cries of the rebels.
The dictator died off-camera from a bullet to the head.
Gaddafi, whose rotting body has been on public display for four days, will be buried Tuesday at an undisclosed location in the desert.
Libya's new leaders, under international pressure, have launched an investigation into who fired the fatal shot.
Interim leader Mustafa Abdul-Jalil suggested Monday that Gaddafi was rubbed out by his own supporters to keep him from naming the names of his accomplices.
"Free Libyans wanted to keep Gaddafi in prison and humiliate him as long as possible," Abdul-Jalil said.
He added: "Those who wanted him killed were those who were loyal to him or had played a role under him. His death was in their benefit."
As horrific as the GlobalPost footage is, it's not the most graphic video of Gaddafi's last moments after he was captured Thursday.
