Gaddafi Buried in Secret Grave

The new Libyan government took the body of Muammar Gaddafi into the desert and buried it in a secret location at dawn on Tuesday. Gaddafi’s tribe, the Qaddafa, had asked for his corpse so he could be buried in his hometown of Sirte; the government, however, refused the request out of fear that the grave might become a shrine. Gaddafi’s corpse had begun to decompose after four days in a meat locker, which was ineffective due to the constant opening of the door. Meanwhile, the Global Post claims that a frame-by-frame video analysis shows that Gaddafi was sodomized by a knife or stick in the moments leading up to his death.
