STOCKHOLM — Moammar Khadafy will commit suicide the way Adolf Hitler did at the end of World War II rather than surrender or flee, a former Libyan cabinet minister told a Swedish newspaper in an interview published on Thursday.

“Khadafy’s days are numbered. He will do what Hitler did — he will take his own life,” former Justice Minister Mustafa Mohamed Abud Al Jeleil told Expressen in an interview in Al Bayda.

Al Jeleil resigned this week in protest of violence used by the government against demonstrators opposed to the Libyan leader, who is battling to preserve his 41-year rule.

In the same interview, part of which were released on Wednesday, Al Jeleil said he had proof Khadafy gave the order for the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, which killed 270 people.
