From Rami Al-Shaheibi , the AP: Libya’s rebels said Friday they have reports that Moammar Gadhafi’s youngest son, who commands one of the regime’s strongest military brigades, was killed in a NATO airstrike in the western town of Zlitan.
NATO said in a statement that it was aware of the reports that Khamis Gadhafi had been killed, but it did not confirm his death. It said alliance strikes on Thursday night hit an ammunition depot and military police facility in Zlitan, which is the main front of fighting between rebels and Gadhafi’s troops, 90 miles (140 kilometers) southeast of Tripoli.
Mohammed al-Rajali, a spokesman for the rebel leadership in the eastern stronghold of Benghazi said there were unconfirmed reports Khamis was among 32 troops killed when NATO hit a government operations center early Friday. . . .
Gadhafi’s sons and a daughter have all played roles in their father’s regime, some in diplomatic or business roles. His sons Mutassim, Khamis and al-Saadi all head military brigades. (photo: Daily Record)
