Gadafi Family’s Villas Stocked with the Finest Wines & Spirits – Libya

UPDATE: Muammar Gadafi was killed in his hometown of Sirte on 20 October 2011 allegedly caught in crossfire between rebels and Gadafi loyalists, as he lay wounded in the back of a pickup truck. There are other reports of how he was killed although, this is the latest and most logical of the stories.

Libyan rebel soldiers stormed through the Gadafi family’s houses in a walled enclave on the Mediterranean Sea West of Tripoli, they uncovered among a hoard of luxury goods, hundreds of bottles of expensive wine, cases of champagne, and boxes of rare cognac. Some of the villas still had crystal wine and champagne glasses left on the terrace, in their haste to leave before the arrival of rebel forces.
