UN rights office urges inquiry into Gaddafi death

GENEVA, Oct 21 (Reuters) - The United Nations human rights office called on Friday for a full investigation into the death of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.

“It is unclear how he died. There is a need for an investigation,” U.N. human rights spokesman Rupert Colville told a news briefing in Geneva.

Referring to separate cell phone images showing a wounded Gaddafi first alive and then later dead amidst a jumble of anti-Gaddafi fighters after his capture in his hometown of Sirte on Thursday, he added: “Taken together, they were very disturbing.” (Reporting by Stephanie Nebehay; Editing by Mark Heinrich)
