Khamis Gaddafi has been killed in the Bani Walid siege, Libya’s National Congress has confirmed. The body of Colonel Gaddafi’s youngest son has reportedly now been transferred to a hospital in Misrata.
A spokesperson from the Congress said that the 28-year-old was killed “in battle,” while Deputy PM Mustafa Abushagur wrote on Twitter that his body had been found in a Misrata hospital.
Earlier, conflicting reports on Twitter said that Khamis Gaddafi was apprehended in Bani Walid by government forces and later died in their custody.
Khamis Gaddafi was said to have been killed by a NATO airstrike in August 2011, but this was never able to be verified. During the past year various militia groups and government forces have claimed to have killed Khamis Gaddafi.
Meanwhile, Moussa Ibrahim, Muammar Gaddafi's former spokesman, reportedly posted an online audio message denying earlier reports of Khamis Gaddafi's death and his capture by government forces.
