Tripoli, Mar 22 (ANI): The Libyan government has denied media reports that Colonel Moammar Gaddafi’s sixth son, Khamis, had been killed in an air attack in Tripoli on Saturday night.

Twenty-seven-year-old Khamis Gaddafi has been leading his own brigade against the rebels since the uprising broke out across the country against his father’s regime, the New York Daily News reports.

The NBN TV in Lebanon had earlier claimed that Khamis was killed when a Libyan pilot conducted a suicide air mission, crashing his plane into the Bab al-Aziziya compound where the dictator’s son was present along with his relatives.

The report also said that Khamis had died in the hospital of extensive burn wounds.

But the Khadafy regime denied the story on Monday, calling it “a nonsensical piece of news.” (ANI)
