Moammar Gadhafi possibly captured or killed!
Multiple reports this morning have swirled around the news world claiming that that deposed Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi has been either captured or killed. None of these reports however have been confirmed… Yet. From CNN.com:
Mahmoud Shamman, Libya’s Information Minister tells CNN that a press conference will be happening soon about the alleged death of Gadhafi. Shamman said Gadhafi is dead. CNN’s Dan Rivers spoke to him in Tripoli where crowds are cheering, shooting guns in a celebratory way and honking their horns.
CNN’s Ben Wedeman, who covers the region and has covered Libya extensively, said that much caution should be used with these reports because false information has come out previously. It is being reported that Gadhafi was found in a storm drain. “It’s a bit of surprise because we knew that he had escaped from Tripoli” with a lot of cash and weapons, Wedeman said. It would seem odd that Gadhafi would end up in a manhole-type of area, Wedeman said live on CNN.
The situation was best summed up by saying “We think there’s something newsworthy to report. We’re not sure what that news is yet, but you heard it here first!” 101-9 KING FM will keep you posted as any news is released.
