A graphic video of his last moments show rebel fighters beating him and one of them sodomizing him with a bayonet before he was shot several times as he pleaded for his life.

His semi-naked, lifeless body was then placed into an ambulance and taken to Misrata upon arrival, he was found to be dead.
