Gaddafi Nanny: I Was Tortured

Muammar Gaddafi often insisted that he lived a modest lifestyle during his 42-year rule, but the Gaddafi family seaside compound in Tripoli reveals a hedonistic and sometimes brutal lifestyle. CNN visited the homes Sunday alongside rebel troops and entered large, sleek, modernly furnished rooms littered with evidence of hedonism. CNN's Dan Rivers also discovered a nanny employed by Hannibal Gaddafi, one of the leader’s sons, who was horribly scarred and said she had been brutally tied up and scalded with boiling water by Hannibal’s wife, Aline, after refusing to beat their crying toddler. Another staff member also confessed to being regularly beaten by the Gaddafi family.
