Khaddafy Killers Could Face War Crime Charges

The International Criminal Court, which once investigated Moammar Khaddafy for war crimes, may now go after Khaddafy's killers. "I think the way in which Mr. Khaddafy was killed creates suspicions," Luis Moreno-Ocampo, an ICC prosecutor said Thursday. A day earlier, a lawyer for Khaddafy's daughter sent a note to the ICC asking if they had started an investigation into the death of her father and brother Muatassim, who were "murdered in the most horrific fashion with their bodies thereafter displayed and grotesquely abused in complete defiance of Islamic law." Grainy images of a bloody Khaddafy being pulled from a drainage ditch by Libyan opposition forces Oct. 20 show he was alive when captured. A second set of images show a celebration happening amid his dead body. Moreno-Ocampo said he was already investigating anti-Khaddafy forces and NATO for possible war crimes during the civil war.
