Khamis Gadhafi, a son of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, was killed in a battle Sunday night with opposition forces, a senior rebel commander told CNN on Monday.
Mahdi al-Harati - the vice chairman of the rebel's Miltary Council, the military wing of the National Transitional Council - said that Khamis Gadhafi died in a battle with rebel forces between the villages of Tarunah and Bani Walid. The battleground is in northwest Libya, near Misrata.
Khamis Gadhafi, who was a senior military commander under his father, was taken to a hospital where he died from his injuries, said al-Harati.
He was then buried in the area by rebel forces, according to the rebel commander.
