    A new era for Libya, region after Khadafy’s death

    SIRTE, Libya (AP) — Moammar Khadafy, Libya’s dictator for 42 years until he was ousted in an uprising-turned-civil war, was killed yesterday as revolutionary fighters overwhelmed his hometown of Surt and captured the last major bastion of resistance two months after his regime fell.

    Interim government officials said one of Khadafy’s sons, his former national security adviser Muatassim, also was killed in Surt, and another, one-time heir apparent Seif al-Islam, was wounded and captured.
