Just two days after the brutal execution of Muammar Gaddafi,
many Libyans are lining up to behold his body with their own eyes.

Gaddafi's body has been stored in a freezer in a Misrata vegetable market since it was brought to the city on Thursday following his death – in still unexplained circumstances – during the fall of his hometown of Sirte.
On the floor next to Gaddafi is the body of his son Mutassim. "All my life I was under his rule," said one of the citizens waiting in the long line. Some of the people waiting were given surgical masks before entering the freezer. "He deserves it for what he did to us, to our children and the country. Libya is free now."

On Thursday, Arab satellite TV stations aired a video clearly showing that Gaddafi was captured alive by revolutionary forces.
The video showed a wounded Gaddafi with a blood-soaked shirt and bloodied face leaning up against the hood of a truck and restrained by fighters, who then push him toward another car. Gaddafi appeared enfeebled and struggling against those who were manhandling him.
