Gadhafi’s Death: Justified or War Crime?
Was this a case of 'mob justice?'
The United Nations and other human rights groups want to know whether Moammar Gadhafi’s death last week constituted a war crime and are calling for an investigation.
There are differing accounts of his death based on shaky, sometimes unfocused videos. According to CNN, one video shows him alive and bleeding and a separate one shows him dead.
Human Rights Watch is among the agencies seeking a probe into Gadhafi’s death.
According to CNN, the National Transitional Council said crossfire from a fight between revoluntionary fighters and loyalists killed Gadhafi, a story human rights groups are disputing.
"When he left the area, he was very much alive," Peter Bouckaert, the group’s emergency director, told CNN. "There's no reason why he should have been subjected to this kind of mob justice."
