The Libyan television station Al-Ahrar reported on Thursday that revolutionary fighters have finally seized Sirte and in the process captured the long sought after Gaddafi.

Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril has confirmed the death of Gaddafi: "We confirm that all the evils, plus Gaddafi, have vanished from this beloved country," Jibril said as the body was delivered.

"It's time to start a new Libya, a united Libya," Jibril added. "One people, one future."

Upon news of the announcement, the streets of Tripoli went into celebratory mode with horns blaring and shots of celebratory gunfire fired into the air.

In August some members of the Gaddafi family fled to Algeria while the strongman’s whereabouts remained unknown. Gaddafi, who led Libya for 42 years, has been in hiding since rebel forces seized the capital Tripoli and only emerged to call upon his loyalists to take back the country from "devils and traitors."

Rumors circulated about where the strongman could be, with some suggesting that he could be as far away as Venezuela or as nearby as Burkina Faso.

Gaddafi was wanted by the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netherlands, for crimes against humanity. It was believed that after rebels captured Tripoli and were unable to find Gaddafi there, that he was hiding in his hometown of Sirte, which is where he was killed today.
