Col. Moammar Gadhafi was killed this morning in his birthplace of Sirte as forces of the National Transitional Council swept the city, according to the leader of the Tripoli military council. The reports have not been confirmed outside of the NTC. Unconfirmed reports also say his spokesman, Moussa Ibrahim, was captured, and Abu Bakr Younus Jabr, head of his military, was killed. Celebrations have erupted all over the country as Libyans rejoiced over the end of his rule. Gadhafi has been in hiding since Tripoli fell to rebel fighters on August 21.
Jawal Nga, a Libyan-American film producer who was raised in Tripoli and London, and Matoog, a Libyan who fought with the rebels in Ras Lanuf and now in Tripoli, react to the reports.
