Gaddafi was killed on Thursday as Libya's new leaders declared they had overrun the last bastion of his long rule, sparking wild celebrations that eight months of war may finally be over. Details of the death near Sirte of the fallen strongman were hazy but it was announced by several officials of the National Transitional Council (NTC) and backed up by a photograph of a bloodied face ringed by familiar, Gaddafi-style curly hair.

    NATO will recommend the end of the military campaign on Libya following the death of former dictator Muammar Gaddafi, a NATO official told The Guardian on Thursday. The formal decision will reportedly come Friday after a special meeting. NATO began its air raid of Libya in February, and Gaddafi was indicted by the International Criminal Court in The Hague in June. Meanwhile, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said “this end is only the beginning” and added that the U.N. mission is on the ground to assist Libyans.
