Muammar Gaddafi died from a bullet wound to the head received in crossfire between government fighters and his own supporters after he had been captured in Sirte, the Libyan interim prime minister has said, citing a forensic report.

Conflicting reports have emerged about how exactly Gaddafi died. He was captured after a Nato air strike hit his convoy as it tried to break away from the siege of his hometown.

“I am going to read to you a report by the forensic doctor who examined Gaddafi,” Mahmoud Jibril told a news conference in the capital, Tripoli.

“It said: ‘Gaddafi was taken out of a sewage pipe … he didn’t show any resistance. When we started moving him he was hit by a bullet in his right arm and when they put him in a truck he did not have any other injuries.'”‘When the car was moving it was caught in crossfire between the revolutionaries and Gaddafi forces in which he was hit by a bullet in the head.'”

“The forensic doctor could not tell if it came from the revolutionaries or from Gaddafi’s forces,” Jibril said.
