Mistaken Identity As Gaddafi Family Killed

Posted on September 22, 2011


While Colonel Gaddafi is probably hiding out in a hole in the desert a la Saddam Hussein before his capture, the brutal effects of his family dynasty are sill being felt across the new Libya. Yahoo have today reported on the tragic case of another Gaddafi family (no relation) who were murdered by Libyan rebels as they attempted to flee the country, purely on the basis of their surname. Having realised their error, the rebels attempted to ferry the injured family to a nearby hospital, however it was too late for Afaf Gaddafi’s two infant daughters as well as her mother and sister. The name Gaddafi is not uncommon in the North African nation, meaning thousands of tribespeople who share his name are still not safe, despite his toppling as despot earlier this month.
