Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, son of Libya's former leader Moamer Gaddafi, who could survive in the NATO's bombing attacks yesterday, has made a futile attempt to escape to Niger, the Al Jazeera reported citing to the National Transitional Council.

Moamer Gaddafi was murdered on Thursday during the NATO's bombing attacks on a convey of cars fleeing from Sirte.

His dead body was brought to the city of Misrata.

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.
