Libyan Officials Say Gadhafi Burial Likely Tuesday

MISRATA, Libya  — A spokesman for the fighters holding Moammar Gadhafi’s body says the slain dictator will probably be buried on Tuesday in an unmarked grave in a secret location.

Ibrahim Beit al-Mal, a spokesman for the Misrata military council, told The Associated Press Monday that he’s “90 percent sure the bodies will be buried tomorrow.” The report could not immediately be confirmed.

The bodies of Gadhafi, one of his sons and a former government minister were on public display for a fourth day in a commercial freezer in the port city, where Misrata residents have been lining up to see them.

Libya’s leader Mustafa Abdul-Jalil said Monday the decisions on what to do with Gadhafi’s body will be governed by a fatwa, or religious edict.
