Thanks to Felix for this fascinating tip - for at least the third time in a year, Khamis Gaddafi, believed to have been killed, was not. At least according to the following dispatch from the Tripoli Post.
BREAKING NEWS: Khamis Gaddafi Captured by Zintan Forces, Another Blow to Pro-Gaddafi Remnants
The Tripoli Post has learnt from reliable sources, that Khamis Gaddafi, one of the sons son of the dead dictator of Libya, has been captured by Zintan rebels near the towns of Regdalin and Jmail in western Libya near the borders with Tunisia.
Khamis who was also a commander of the Gaddafi forces during the revolution and participated in the killing of the civilian protesters in Zawiyaha, Tripoli, Misurata and other Libyan cities and towns was well known for his brutality and crimes.
His most feared brigade, named the Mechanical 32 Brigade, played a major role in the suppressing of the uprising and also committing many war crimes.
Zintan forces captured Seif Gaddafi three months ago in the Sahara desert and he is now imprisoned there.
Khamis has been reported dead many times during last year's conflict but he always turned out to be alive.
More to come.
Unconfirmed reports say that his doctor has also been captured and that Khamis has an amputated leg.
His convenient death story with no proof in late August was less than convincing, and I suspected he might still be around, although we sure didn't see any proof. Now Zintan's oddly positioned forces, already holding Saif al-Islam incomunicado, say they can confirm that.
Now he can go on trial for the shed massacre he allegedly ordered personally. This makes us and our findings suddenly more significant.
Unless he now dies. But even that only lasts until he emerges alive yet again.
