Leaders of the National Transitional Council (NTC), Libya’s interim government, yesterday revealed that Muammar Gaddafi has been buried in a secret location in the Sahara desert. The announcement comes following increasing controversy surrounding the capture and death of the Colonel.

For the past few days, Gaddafi’s decomposing corpse has been on public display in disregard of muslim funeral rites, which call for burial within 24 hours of death. The remains of Gaddafi’s son, Mutassim, and a commander in his army, Abu Bakr Younis, were also displayed alongside those of Gaddafi in a meat refrigerator in Misrata.
