Call for inquiry into Gaddafi death

Amnesty International has called for an independent inquiry into the circumstances of the death of Muammar Gaddafi, who appears to have been captured alive before being shot.

Footage broadcast by Arab satellite television stations showed the ousted Libyan dictator being manhandled by pro-government fighters.

He is bloodied and looks weak in the images but can be heard shouting at his captors as he is bundled towards a car. Soon afterwards, he was shot.

Human rights campaign group Amnesty called for the National Transitional Council (NTC) to publish the full facts of Gaddafi's death and hold a "full, independent and impartial inquiry to establish the circumstances of Colonel al-Gaddafi's death".
