MISRATA (AFP) - The body of slain despot Moamer Gaddafi was buried overnight in a secret location after being displayed in public for days, marking an ignominious end for the colonel who ruled Libya with an iron fist for four decades. A Misrata military council member, speaking on condition of anonymity, said on Tuesday that Gaddafis remains were buried overnight in a religious ceremony, along with the corpses of his son Mutassim and ex-defence minister Abu Bakr Yunis Jaber. The bodies had been put on display in a market freezer on the outskirts of Misrata, 215 km east of Tripoli, with thousands of Libyans queuing up since Friday to view and photograph them. According to guards at the entrance to the market, a convoy of four or five military vehicles took the bodies away to an unknown location late on Monday night. Three religious leaders loyal to the ousted dictator prayed and performed a religious ceremony before the burial, the military council member told AFP. The two sons of the former defence minister, brought straight from prison, and his father were present to witness the bodies being picked up from the market, the source said. I saw the burial permit. It stated that Gaddafi had two gunshot wounds, one in the head and one in the chest, and that he bore the scars of previous surgical operations, the source added. Although NTC officials earlier said they planned to hand Gaddafis body to his relatives, but the military council in Misrata was determined to bury it in a secret, amid concerns the grave might become a rallying point for residual loyalists. The overnight burials come amid raging controversy over the circumstances of Gaddafis death after he was taken alive during the fall of his hometown Sirte last Thursday. Libyas interim leader Mustafa Abdel Jalil said a commission of inquiry is to probe the strongmans killing after concerns raised by foreign governments and rights group. In response to international calls, we have started to put in place a commission tasked with investigating the circumstances of Moamer Gaddafis death in the clash with his circle as he was being captured, Abdel Jalil said on Monday. Disquiet has grown internationally over how Gaddafi met his end after NTC fighters hauled him out of a culvert where he was hiding following Nato air strikes on the convoy in which he had been trying to flee his falling hometown. Mobile phone videos show him still alive at that point. Libyas interim prime minister Mahmud Jibril said in Jordan on Sunday that an autopsy report showed Gaddafi was killed in crossfire from both sides.
