London, Aug 10 (IANS) Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi’s son Khamis Gaddafi, who was said to have been killed a few days ago, has appeared on Libyan state television, the Telegraph reported.

The Libyan government has denied claims of the rebel group that Khamis - commander of one of Gaddafi’s best-equipped units - was killed in a NATO air-strike near Zlitan.

Libyan TV said the footage was recorded Tuesday.

Wearing a military uniform and an orange beret, and bearing a striking resemblance to Khamis, a man was heard chatting to people, who the TV network said were wounded earlier Tuesday in the NATO air strike.

The government said dozens of civilians were killed in the attack. NATO said it hit a legitimate military target and was investigating the incident.

“They bombed the house. You mean you did not expect to be bombed,” Khamis could be heard asking a woman lying on a hospital bed.
