New Delhi: This Libyan tyrant ruled Libya for 42 years. Muammar Gaddafi was born in a tent near Qasr Abu Hadi, a rural area outside the town of Sirte in the deserts of western Libya.

 

 

He seized power in a military coup in 1969. The end to his era in Libya  started with the start of civil war in 2011 and finally in August 2011 Libya's rebel leaders declared an end to the "era of Gaddafi" and called on his militias in Tripoli to refrain from revenge attacks.

After rebels finally took his home town of Sirte, the fallen dictator was killed in a firefight with militias belonging to  the Libya's National Transitional Council. Gaddafi was hiding inside a pipe, when he was picked out and lynched by the rebels. There were reports that he was buried at a secret location in the Libyan desert along with his son Mutassim and the country's former defence minister.
