8.19am: Welcome to Middle East Live on the first day of the post-Gaddafi era in Libya. To take stock of what has happened, we start with a Q&A on the killing of Gaddafi, what it means for Libya, and what happens next?

How did Muammar Gaddafi die?

Gaddafi was trying to flee Sirte in a convoy of cars when it came under attack from French Nato jets. The convoy was then caught in a gun battle with fighters loyal to the National Transitional Council. Wounded in the shoot-out, Gaddafi was reported to have crawled into a drain. He was then attacked by fighters loyal to the new government, one of whom beat him with a shoe.

Video emerged [warning: graphic content] which appeared to show him alive. Later photographs [warning: graphic content] appeared to show his corpse with a bullet wound to his temple.

Abdel-Jalil Abdel-Aziz, a doctor who accompanied Gaddafi's body in an ambulance as it was taken from Sirte, said he died from two shots, to the head and chest.

Libya's interim prime minister, Mahmoud Jibril, said Gaddafi died from a bullet wound to the head received in crossfire between government fighters and his own supporters after he had been captured in Sirte. Gaddafi had been alive when he was taken from Sirte but died a few minutes before reaching hospital, he claimed.

Where is Gaddafi's body?

The body was taken to Misrata. DNA samples have been taken.

Who else was killed?

One of Gaddafi's sons, Mutassim, died of multiple bullet wounds. Jibril said Mutassim was wounded in the head, and had five bullets in the back and one in the neck. Abu Bakr Yunis, Gaddafi former Libyan defence minister, was killed in the attack on the convoy.

Who is still at large?

Confusion surrounds the fate of Gaddafi's son Saif al-Islam. Some reports say he has been killed, some say he has been injured, others say he is still on the run.

Who has been captured?

Mansour Dhou, Gaddafi's military commander, who led the defence of Sirte, is recovering in hospital in that city after being shot in the stomach. Other senior figures reported captured include: Moussa Ibrahim, Gaddafi's spokesman; Ahmed Ibrahim his cousin and education minister; and Abdullah Senussi, Gaddafi's intelligence chief.

10:07 AM, WHO NEXT? Your mother and your sister. You know who...prep is on the way so tell them to pretty themselves up and get ready.

What a wishful thinking yellow monkey. There are no such thing as 3rd KKK bullshit. Who's really next? Either Thailand going down in drowning to meet hell down below or Vietnam getting ass screw by China. Worst yet, become China's piece of shit territory. You take your pick who's next. Cambodia had been to hell and back. There is no way in hell she's going back. Now it's Vietnam and Thailand turn. You'd better hope these 2 mokey nations are ready for what Cambodia had gone through. Good luck boys.

Gaddafi said he'd rather die than giving up power. Now he got his wish. Hun Sen said he wanted to rule until he is 90, will he get his wish? It remains to be seen.
