Burial of Gadhafi Delayed amid Questions over Final Moments The American leader of NATO, Admiral James Stavridis, used Facebook today to tell the world he'll recommend the end of the NATO mission in Libya. Meantime, Moammar Gadhafi is dead, but not yet buried, despite Islamic tradition. His body lies in a refrigerator in Misurata. Was he killed in "crossfire" between opposing forces or executed by rebels using his own "golden handgun?" The UN human rights office wants to investigate the way in which he was killed. Mary Beth Sheridan is reporting from Tripoli for the Washington Post .
The Death of Moammar Gadhafi The dictator who terrorized Libya for 42 years was killed today, shot while trying to escape rebel forces in his hometown of Sirte. Since rebel forces deposed Moammar Gadhafi two months ago, he’s been on the run. Today, al Jazeera TV aired gruesome footage of armed men dragging a wounded, bloody person said to be Gadhafi. A separate clip showed his half-naked corpse, apparently shot in the head. When the Transitional National Council confirmed that he was dead, Libyans danced in the streets. We hear reaction from Tripoli, Tunesia, Qattar and Washington, DC.

What's next for an oil-rich nation divided by tribal and sectarian rivalries, where the potential outcomes range from democracy to civil war?
