gaddafi death.jpgThe chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, (ICC), says the death of Libya’s former leader Muammar Gaddafi creates suspicions of war crimes.

Luis Moreno-Ocampo said the ICC was raising the concern with Libya’s National Transitional Council (NTC).

Colonel Gaddafi was killed on 20 October after being caught by rebels in his home town of Sirte.

NTC officials initially said he died in crossfire, but promised to investigate following western pressure.

Rebel fighters found Colonel Gaddafi hiding in a concrete drainage pipe after an attack on the former leader’s home city of Sirte.

Meanwhile, the ICC has indicted another of Gaddafi’s sons, Saif al-Islam, for alleged war crimes and he is in the custody of the Libyan authorities.
