A Libyan rebel confessed on camera Sunday to killing Muammar Gaddafi.
The provisional government in Libya is claiming Gaddafi was killed in a shootout in the city of Sirte, where the ousted leader had been hiding.

However, following his death videos began to surface showing Gaddafi bleeding while being held by rebels, which raised the suspicion he was executed.

The rebel, who identified himself as Senad el Sadık el Ureybi, said: "We grabbed him, I hit him in the face. Some fighters wanted to take him away and that's when I shot him twice, in the head and in the chest."
He noted that Gaddafi didn't die instantaneously, and that it took half an hour. He said he didn't like the idea of Gaddadi being caught alive.
The video also shows a bloodied shirt which allegedly belonged to the dictator and a golden ring with his wife's name engraved on it. The claims cannot be confirmed as of yet.
