Report: Gaddafi son who went to NU dead

August 5, 2011 (CHICAGO)

Al Jazeera says rebels claim that Gaddafi's son Khamis was killed in a NATO airstrike. According to the Arab news network, Mohammed Zawawi, a spokesman for the rebels, said, "Overnight, there was an aircraft attack by NATO on the Gaddafi operations room in Zlitan, and there are around 32 Gaddafi troops killed. One of them is Khamis."

NATO has not confirmed the death of Khamis but is currently looking into the report. The Gaddafi government denies Khamis is dead but has yet to produce him.
