Al-Arabiya television quoted on Friday an unnamed source as saying reports that Libyan leader Moammad Qaddafi’s son, Khamis, was killed are true.
The source added that Khamis Qaddafi was killed in a raid in Bab al-Aziziyah in Tripoli.
Khamis, 27, who runs the feared Khamis Brigade that has been prominent in its role of attacking rebel-held areas, was reportedly killed Saturday night.
According to reports on Algerian TV, a Libyan air force pilot crashed his jet into the Bab al-Aziziyah compound in Tripoli in a kamikaze attack.
Khamis allegedly died of burns in hospital. The Gaddafi regime denied the reports of his death
