Muammar Gaddafi
Misrata, Oct 24: A spokesman for the fighters holding Muammar Gaddafi's body says the slain dictator will probably be buried in an unmarked grave in a secret location. Ibrahim Beit al-Mal, a spokesman for the Misrata military council, told The Associated Press today that he's "90 per cent sure the bodies will be buried on Wednesday, Oct 26."

The report could not immediately be confirmed. The bodies of Gaddafi, one of his sons and a former government minister were on public display for a fourth day in a commercial freezer in the port city, where Misrata residents have been lining up to see them. Libya's leader Mustafa Abdul-Jalil said today the decisions on what to do with Gaddafi's body will be governed by a fatwa, or religious edict.
