Libyan Leader Gadhafi Dead Thursday

| No Comments

Moammar Gadhafi died on the way to a hospital after being shot in a cross-fire Thursday.

Gadhafi, 69, was in power 42 years and was hiding in a sewage pipe before being shot at.

In CNN's This Just In updates, it was a matter of hours before reporters could confirm that it was Gadhafi who was captured and killed.

With Gadhafi dead, Libya's people are rid of the world's longest-serving dictator, President Obama said through the Washington Post at a Rose Garden address.

"The dark shadow of tyranny has been lifted. And with this enormous promise, the Libyan people now have a great responsibility," Obama said.
