ASSOCIATED PRESS Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, here in August 1996, wipes the face of a daughter named Hana. Since the rebel takeover of Tripoli, evidence has been mounting that Col. Gadhafi lied about the death of his adopted baby daughter named Hana in a 1986 American airstrike. Rebels last week found a room in Col. Gadhafi's home with Hana's birth certificate and pictures of a young woman with the name “Hana” written on the back, possible indications that she lived beyond infancy.
