The Al Jazeera news network published a video it says it acquired of the body of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi after he was killed in his hometown of Sirte.

The video footage shows a body on the ground as it is being moved and turned over, with numerous people surrounding it. Audio indicates there is a commotion and shouting.

The person on the ground is partially shirtless and the garment he is wearing is bloodied. After being turned over briefly, a face which bears a strong resemblance to Gaddafi is seen. It is not clear from the video whether the person is alive or dead.

Gaddafi was killed in a shootout with insurgents in his hometown of Sirte, the country’s rebel government said Thursday.

Information Minister Mahmoud Shamman said fighters on the ground said they had seen the former leader’s body, according to the BBC.

"He [Gaddafi] was also hit in his head," National Transitional Council official Abdel Majid Mlegta told Reuters. “There was a lot of firing against his group and he died.”

According to an earlier report by Reuters, Gaddafi was captured and wounded as he tried to flee in a convoy that NATO attacked with warplanes.
