Gadhafi Buried in Secret Location at Dawn

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

Libyan officials confirmed on Tuesday that the body of Col. Moammar Gadhafi, his son Muatassim, and former Defense Minister Abu Bakr Younis were buried at dawn in a secret location. Questions over how and when to dispose of the former dictator's body created a challenge for Libya's transitional government. Islamic law dictates that burial should happen within a day after death, but Libya's National Transitional Council took several days to decided how to act. Katya Adler, correspondent for the BBC, reports on the latest from Tripoli.

It is a stark contrast between the sanguine spin the media give to Libya, Egypt and Tunisia's uncertain future compared to the dour outlook they had for Iraq. I suppose domestic politics is the guide for some "unbiased" foreign policy coverage.
