    Reuters quotes Abdel Majid of the Libyan transitional government as saying that a wounded Moammar Gaddafi has been captured.

    Update at 7:28 a.m. ET: Former Libyan minister of information Ali Errishi tells Al Jazeera that top officials in the National Transitional Council have confirmed Gadhafi's capture.

    The Reuters reports says that Gadhafi was wounded in both legs.

    Al Jazeera quotes an NTC official as saying only that a "high-profile target" has been captured.

    The report come as the transitional government says it has seized Gadhafi's hometown of Sirte.

    Original post: Libyan TV channels are reporting the arrest of Moammar Qaddafi in his hometown of Sirte, Al Alibya reports. There has been no official confirmation.

    Al Arabiya, quoting medics, also reports that ousted defense minister Abu Bakr Yunis has been found dead in the city, which was one of the last strongholds of Gadhafi loyalists.

    News Channels here are saying that he has been captured,
    CNN and RT and Local news channels are going nuts on the news.

    SIRTE, Libya (Reuters) - Former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi died of wounds suffered in his capture near his hometown of Sirte on Thursday, a senior NTC military official said.

    National Transitional Council official Abdel Majid Mlegta told Reuters earlier that Gaddafi was captured and wounded in both legs at dawn on Thursday as he tried to flee in a convoy which NATO warplanes attacked.

    "He was also hit in his head," the official said. "There was a lot of firing against his group and he died."

    There was no independent confirmation of his remarks.
