Washington, Oct 21 (IANS): Muammar Gaddafi was alive when he was captured by the National Transitional Council fighters in his hometown Sirte shows a video on YouTube.
The video appears to show Gaddafi moments after his arrest, said washingtonpost.com. It seems to capture the final moments of the man who ruled Libya for 42 years, after coming to power in a bloodless coup in 1969.
The video is shaky and shows fighters crowding around a bloodied Gaddafi.
There is now an internet debate on whether Gaddafi died from his wounds or was he killed after his capture.
Gunshots can be heard in the video as the camera moves away from the dictator.
The fall of Sirte and Gaddafi's death brought an end to a tumultuous period in Libya, which witnessed an uprising that was inspired by the Egyptian and Tunisian revolt.
