Revolutionary forces overwhelmed the town of Sirte Thursday morning, the last major bastion of resistance since the fall of Gadhafi’s regime. Moammar Gadhafi has been reportedly killed in the struggle. Interim Libyan Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril told reporters in Tripoli on Thursday that Gadhafi’s death has been confirmed. NATO has reported that its aircraft struck two pro-Gadhafi military vehicles in Sirte.
The White House has not yet confirmed the reports of Gadhafi’s death or capture. There have been past reports of Gadhafi family deaths or captures that were later proven to be untrue. In Sirte, revolutionary forces celebrated by cheering and honking car horns, and shooting into the air.
