Libya's former leader Moamer Gaddafi was first captured alive, but was later murdered by shootings of participants of operation, the Aljazeera reported.

His dead body was brought to the city of Misrata.

Former Libya's Defense Minister Abu-Bakr Yunis Jabr was also killed during the air strikes.
Mass demonstrations demanding for the ouster of Qaddafi, who has been ruling the country for more than 40 years, started in Libya in mid-February and subsequently grew into armed confrontation between the government forces and the rebels.

On August 23, 2011, Gaddafi lost control of Tripoli, and effective control of Libya with the rebels' capture of the Bab al-Azizia compound.

NTC forces now control most of Libyan territory, including the capital Tripoli. They have been trying to take several cities controlled by pro-Gaddafi troops, including Bani Walid and Sirte.
