A fugitive wanted by the International Criminal Court, Moammar Gadhafi's one-time heir apparent appears to have disappeared in the Sahara Desert's ocean of dunes and could remain hidden for months in an area more than twice the size of Texas.
Libyan transitional government officials on Wednesday said Col. Moammar Gadhafi was captured and possibly killed when revolutionary forces overwhelmed the ousted leader's hometown of Sirte, the last major bastion of resistance two months after his regime fell.
A Libyan military spokesman on Monday said revolutionary forces have captured almost all of Bani Walid, one of Col. Moammar Gadhafi's last remaining strongholds.
Libya's new rulers think Col. Moammar Gadhafi may be hiding in the southern desert under the protection of ethnic Tuareg fighters, while two of his sons are holed up in cities besieged by revolutionary forces elsewhere in the North African nation, officials said Wednesday.
Gunmen loyal to Col. Moammar Gadhafi have crossed the Libyan border from Algeria and attacked revolutionary forces in a town near the frontier, killing six people, officials said Sunday.
Col. Moammar Gadhafi's wife and three of his children fled Libya to neighboring Algeria on Monday, firm evidence that the longtime leader has lost his grip on the country.
