People stand in line to see the body of former Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi in Misrata.

Libya’s interim rulers say they will declare the liberation of Libya on Sunday, three days after deposed dictator Moammar Gadhafi was killed.

Officials from the governing National Transitional Council (NTC) said the announcement would be made in the eastern city of Benghazi, the revolution’s birthplace, a day later than originally planned. No reason was given for the 24-hour delay.

In a separate development, interim Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril said Libyans should be allowed to vote within eight months to elect a national council that would draft a new constitution and form an interim government.

Jibril made that announcement Saturday as he attended the World Economic Forum in Jordan. He also said he expects to step down on Saturday, reiterating a promise he made earlier in the month.

Meanwhile, the BBC reported an NTC official as saying Saturday that Gadhafi’s body has undergone a post-mortem examination and will be handed over to his surviving family. However, Al Jazeera reported NTC officials as saying earlier that no autopsy would be needed, despite questions still swirling around official accounts of his death.

The UN human rights office says it’s concerned he was summarily executed after his capture Thursday on the outskirts of his hometown Sirte, two months after he was driven from power and into hiding.

In one cellphone video recording the chaos that followed Gadhafi’s capture, he is seen wiping blood away from his head. There seems to be no wound in that video. In a second video, there is a bullet wound in the same spot on his head, raising speculation he was shot execution-style.


NTC leaders have said Gadhafi, 69, was shot in the head when he was “caught in the crossfire” between his supporters and new regime fighters soon after he was pulled from a culvert where he had been hiding.

The CBC’s Derek Stoffel, reporting from Tripoli Saturday, said amateur video taken by opposition fighters is raising red flags for human rights groups, but “Libyans mostly don’t care how he died.”

“I’ve been speaking to many here who say after 42 years of his rule he deserved what he got, although there are some who say they would have liked ot have seen a trial for the crimes he carried out against the Libyan people,” Stoffel said.

Lineups to see body

Omar Turbi, an American advisor to the National Transitional Council, says Libyans are looking forward, not backward.

“The feeling is everybody’s happy. there are no considerations for legal ramifications [regarding] how he died because of all the vengeance and all the built-up feelings toward Gadhafi. It doesn’t matter how he died. It’s the end of an era that has been a horrible history of Libya,” Turbi said.

Opposition forces stepped up the search for Gadhafi after they swept into Tripoli and seized control of most of the oil-rich North African nation.

Their campaign was stalled by fierce resistance by Gadhafi loyalists in Sirte, Bani Walid and pockets in the south.

Gadhafi’s body had become somewhat of a tourist attraction. It was being held in a freezer in a shopping mall in Misrata, east of Tripoli, as the debate continues over what to do with his remains.

People crowded into long lines to get a chance to view the body, which was laid out on a mattress.

The body of Gadhafi’s son, Mutassim, had been moved from another location in Misrata and placed next to his dead father, along with the body of Abu Bakr Younis Jabr, who led Gadhafi’s armed forces. They, too, were killed near Sirte.

Mohamed Sayeh, a senior member of the NTC, on Friday said Moammar Gadhafi’s body will be buried according to Islamic tradition, but the funeral will not be public.
