Qaddafi’s Dead, Libya’s Challenges Remain » Anti-Gaddafi fighters gesture as they ride in a vehicle, trailed by an image of Muammar Gaddafi, after the fall of Sirte in the town October 20, 2011. Gaddafi was killed on Thursday as Libya’s new leaders declared they had overrun the last bastion of his long rule, sparking wild celebrations that eight months of war may finally be over. Details of the death near Sirte of the fallen strongman were hazy but it was announced by several officials of the National Transitional Council (NTC) and backed up by a photograph of a bloodied face ringed by familiar, Gaddafi-style curly hair.
