Provisional government officials in Libya say former leader Moammar Gadhafi has died after being wounded as he tried to flee from the town of Sirte. The reports have not been independently confirmed.
Earlier Thursday, military leaders in the National Transitional Council (NTC) said Gadhafi had been taken into custody. NTC officials said he was badly wounded.
Revolutionary fighters made a final push into Sirte, Thursday, after spending weeks battling well-armed Gadhafi loyalists.
