Gadhafi's Burial Delayed For Further Investigation

TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) - A Libyan official says the burial of slain leader Moammar Gadhafi has been delayed until his death can be examined by the International Criminal Court.

Mohamed Sayeh, a senior member of the governing National Transitional Council, says a "third party will come from outside of Libya to go through the paperwork."

Sayeh also says Gadhafi's body is still in Misrata, where it was taken after his killing in Sirte. He says Gadhafi will be buried with respect according to Islam tradition and will not have a
public funeral.

Today's delay comes as bloody images of Gadhafi's last moments have raised questions over how exactly he died after he was captured wounded, but alive.

A spokesman for the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights in Geneva says the shaky amateur videos are "very disturbing" and that there needs to be a probe into the circumstances of Gadhafi's death.
