Gaddafi Said To now be Buried in Secret Location along with others.

“The bodies of Gaddafi, his son Mutassim and former Defense Minister Abu Bakr Younis had been held in cold storage in the port city of Misurata since the dictator and members of his entourage were captured near his hometown of Sirte on Thursday. Gaddafi and Mutassim were captured alive, with some injuries, but died in unclear circumstances later that day.

“Libya’s interim leaders have promised an investigation, responding to mounting international pressure.

“On Monday, Beitalmal had said the three would be buried in unmarked graves in a secret location to prevent vandalism. Presumably, the graves would also be kept hidden to avoid turning them into shrines for Gaddafi loyalists.

“International organizations asking to see the burial site would be given access, Beitalmal said.”

The process sounds reasoned and respectful, and now we shall see what shall happen next. There are many stories of prophets’, bandits’, saints’ and criminals’ bodies being stolen and re-stolen for various reasons over the centuries. I will hope these will find eternal rest without further incident.
