Clinton backs calls to investigate Gadhafi's death
Secretary of State Clinton supports calls for investigating death of Libya's Gadhafi
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says she supports calls for an investigation into the death of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi as part of Libya's transition from dictatorship to democracy.

Gadhafi was captured wounded, but alive Thursday in his hometown of Sirte. Bloody images of Gadhafi being taunted and beaten by his captors have raised questions about whether he was killed in crossfire, as suggested by government officials, or was executed.

Clinton tells NBC's "Meet the Press" that she backs a proposal that the United Nations investigate Gadhafi's death and that Libya's Transitional National Council look into the circumstances, too.



Clinton says a democratic Libya should begin with the rule of law and accountability, as well as unity and reconciliation. She says investigating Gadhafi's death is part of the process.
