discovered Libya's Muammar Gaddafi hiding in a drainage pipe nearly a
year ago has died of injuries after being kidnapped, beaten and slashed
by the late dictator's supporters.
He is the latest victim of persistent violence and instability in the North African country.
death yesterday of Omran Shaaban, who had been hospitalised in France,
raised the prospect of even more violence and score-settling, with the
newly elected National Congress authorising police and the army to use
force if necessary to apprehend those who abducted the 22-year-old and
three companions in July near the town of Bani Walid.
Libya is battling lingering pockets of support for the old Gaddafi
regime, and its government has been unable to rein in armed militias in
a country rife with weapons. Earlier this month, a demonstration at the
US consulate in the eastern city of Benghazi turned violent, killing
four Americans, including the US ambassador.
Shaaban was praised
as a "dutiful martyr'' by the National Congress, although his family
says he never received a promised reward of 1 million Libyan dinars
($A773,432) for capturing Gaddafi on October 20, 2011, in the former
leader's hometown of Sirte. The eccentric dictator was killed later that
day by revolutionary fighters.
The Libyan government said it
would honour Shaaban with a funeral befitting a hero. His body was
greeted at the airport in his hometown of Misrata by more than 10,000
people for a procession to a soccer stadium for funeral prayers.

In the capital of Tripoli, several hundred protesters
gathered outside the headquarters of the National Congress to demand
that the government avenge Shaaban's death.
Shaaban's family said
that he and three friends had been on their way home to the western city
of Misrata from a vacation in July when they were attacked by gunmen in
an area called el-Shimekh near Bani Walid.
Shaaban and his friends, who like many Libyans were armed, fired back, the family said.
bullets hit Shaaban, and he was paralysed from the waist down, his
relatives said. The men were captured by militiamen from Bani Walid, a
town of about 100,000 people that remains a stronghold of Gaddafi
loyalists and is isolated from the rest of Libya.
Mohammed el-Megarif visited Bani Walid this month and secured the
release of Shaaban and two of his companions. A fourth is still being

Shield, a loose coalition of the country's largest militias relied on
by the Defence Ministry.
Libya's president released a statement
today vowing that those responsible for the violence against Omran
Shaaban would be punished.

militants in Bani Walid are among the most daunting tasks facing the
government. The town is heavily armed with rocket-propelled grenades,
automatic weapons and artillery left over from last year's civil war.

weddings and youths play his speeches on their cars' stereos. Students
refrain from singing Libya's new national anthem and teachers refuse to
follow the revised curriculum.
Bani Walid fighters were blamed for
many of the sniper attacks, shelling, rapes and other violence against
the city of Misrata during the civil war, and there were new calls on
yesterday from residents of Misrata for vengeance against Bani Walid.
