Thousands Flock to Gaddafi’s Corpse

Four days after his death, Muammar Gaddafi has not yet been buried. In fact, his corpse is on public view in a meat locker in Misrata, and thousands of Libyans are turning out to see it. Gaddafi’s body, along with that of his son Mutassim and his military chief, has begun to decompose. "There are so many rumors in Libya that it's difficult to believe anything without verifying it," said one visitor. Meanwhile, a gruesome video surfaced of what appears to be Gaddafi’s final moments: rebel fights pummel him as he appears to beg for his life. Gaddafi died from a gunshot wound to the head, according to his autopsy report.
