DOHA (AFP) - Libyas interim leader Mustafa Abdel Jalil on Wednesday urged NATO to continue its Libya campaign until years end, saying loyalists of slain Muammar Gaddafi still pose a threat to the country. Abdel Jalils comments, made at a Doha conference of military allies of his NTC, came a day after Gaddafis body was buried in secret under cover of darkness after being displayed in public for four days. We hope (NATO) will continue its campaign until at least the end of this year to serve us and neighbouring countries, NTC chairman Abdel Jalil told Conference of Friends Committee. This request is aimed at ensuring that no arms are infiltrated into those countries and to ensure the security of Libyans from some remnants of Gaddafis forces who have fled to nearby countries, he added. The NTC is also seeking help from NATO in developing Libyas defence and security systems, Abdel Jalil told the conference. But French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said NATOs existing campaign in Libya was over and said the alliance was seeking other ways to help the country. We are in a new phase, Juppe said. The military engagement, which accomplished the objectives we were pursuing, is now over. Is there another way to accompany the NTC (new leaders) in this period, which is still a transitional period? We will look at this, he told journalists. We are studying this question with our partners and with the secretary general of the alliance, Juppe said. In New York, Libyas deputy envoy to the United Nations, Ibrahim Dabbashi, said the NTC may formally ask the Security Council to extend the mandate because a national army has yet to be activated. However, Russias UN ambassador Vitaly Churkin, whose country said the original mandate was abused to bring down the Gaddafi regime rather than protect civilians, said an extension past October 31 would be 'unrealistic. Dabbashi also told the Security Council that preliminary reports from the inquiry into Gaddafis controversial death indicated he was not shot after his detention but died of injuries sustained before capture. According to initial reports, none of the revolutionaries fired at him after arresting him, he said. According to the initial inquiries and information we have, Gaddafi was injured in the course of the clashes between his loyalists and the revolutionaries, Dabbashi told the council. After his detention, he was bleeding from his abdomen and head and he passed away on his arrival at hospital in the city of Misrata, the envoy said. Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin expressed his 'disgust at the global media for its graphic coverage of Gaddafis death. Almost the entire Gaddafi family was killed. His body was shown on all the world channels. You could not watch without disgust, news agencies quoted Putin as saying. What is that? Putin exclaimed. They show a bloodied man, wounded, still alive but getting beaten to death. And they splash that all over the screen. 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 airstrikes on the convoy in which he had been trying to flee his falling hometown. Mobile phone videos show him still alive at that point. Diplomats in Brussels said NATO had decided to delay a formal decision to end Libyan air operations until Friday after the NTCs request for an extension and a Russian demand for UN consultations. In the wake of Gaddafis capture and death last week, NATOs decision-making body, the North Atlantic Council (NAC), had been expected to agree formally on Wednesday to set October 31 as the date to end the seven-month-old air war. Qatar revealed that hundreds of its troops had been involved alongside Libyans in their battle to topple the longtime despot.
