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.
CNN's Salma Abdelaziz contributed to this report.
...our congress voted-in the largest increase in prison funding in our nations history. Why? "To house the thousands of terrorists we will bring to justice" was the official answer. Assassinations and disposing of bodies is not justice. Duh.
