Gaddafi Burial Delayed

The body of Muammar Gaddafi is being kept in a shopping-center freezer until his death can be investigated and a burial site chosen. The U.N. human-rights office called for an investigation into his death, prompting Libyan authorities to delay the burial scheduled for today. Libyan officials say Gaddafi died in crossfire between loyalists and rebels, but there are videos showing him wounded, stumbling among a crowd of NTC soldiers, and begging for mercy. Other photographs show Gaddafi with a bullet hole in his head that forensics experts say looks like a shot fired at close range.
