Muammar Gaddafi

Col Gaddafi was feted in the West before anointed a bad guy. That Indian models grouped around him in the early noughties on a shoot in Libya is a revelation. Here they are, among them Neha Dhupia, Aditi Gowitrikar, Sham­ita Singha and a very new, 18-year-old model, Katrina Kaif.

This image from video broadcast on Al-Arabiya television is said to show Muammar Gaddafi in Sirte, Libya. Libya's information minister said Muammar Gaddafi was killed when revolutionary forces overwhelmed his hometown, Sirte, the last major bastion of resistance two months after the regime fell. Amid the fighting, a NATO airstrike blasted a fleeing convoy that fighters said was carrying Gaddafi.

Seif al-Islam says his hand was injured during a recent allied bombing.
