Today new footage emerged of Colonel Gaddafi's final moments. He's seen being led away on foot by rebel fighters who quickly surround him. Guns are pointed at his head, and voices can be heard arguing over whether to kill him. This footage appears to have been filmed later. He's still alive, and he's been lifted onto a truck. Some time after that, he's filmed lying on the ground where he appears lifeless. Several hours later, he was pronounced dead. No one knows who fired the shot that killed him.

Contrary to Islamic tradition, his body is yet to be buried and lies in a cold storage room in Misrata. The body of one of Colonel Gaddafi's sons, Mutassim, is also in cold storage and has been on display. It has two gunshot wounds - one in the neck and one in the chest. Another son Saif al-Islam, who was widely considered to be the heir to Colonel Gaddafi, is thought to have fled Sirte as NTC fighters took control of the town. Some members of the interim authorities said he'd been wounded and captured by revolutionary fighters, but there's been no independent evidence of this.

President Obama has confirmed that United States forces will complete their withdrawal from Iraq by the end of the year. The final troops would return, he said, with their heads held high and with the backing of the American people.

"Today I can report that, as promised, the rest of our troops in Iraq will come home by the end of the year. After nearly nine years, America's war in Iraq will be over. Over the next two months, our troops in Iraq, tens of thousands of them, will pack up their gear and board convoys for the journey home."

Mr Obama said discussions would go on with Iraqi leaders about how the US could continue to help train Iraqi forces.

The American Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has confirmed that the United States has held a meeting with members of the militant Haqqani network. It's reported to have taken place in recent months before several major attacks against US interests in Afghanistan which have been blamed on Haqqani fighters. Here's Kim Ghattas.
美国国务卿希拉里克林顿声称,美国与哈卡尼军事组织数名成员举行会谈,据说会谈是在数月之前,该组织据信在阿富汗境内发动一连串武装侵犯美国利益的行动。下面是Kim Ghattas的报道。

Speaking to Pakistani journalists, Mrs Clinton said the US had reached out to the Taliban and the Haqqani network to test their sincerity and their willingness to engage in a peace process. The American secretary of state said Pakistan had helped facilitate the meeting. A political settlement is key to ending the war in Afghanistan. A senior US official also said the meeting took place over the summer at the request of Pakistan's intelligence services, the ISI, who asked the US to give it a chance.

World News from the BBC

Football's world governing body Fifa has said it'll release documents relating to a corruption scandal 10 years ago. Fifa's president Sepp Blatter said the documents will be handed to an independent external body. A BBC correspondent says they could identify senior Fifa members who allegedly took bribes in the 1990s.
世界足球官方组织Fifa声称,将公布关于10年前一起涉嫌腐败丑闻的文档,国际足联主席Sepp Blatter说,这些文档将交由一个外部独立机构。BBC一名记者说,Fifa将确认其20世纪90年代涉嫌受贿的高级官员。

Stock markets have been gaining on hopes of an eventual deal as ministers begin a weekend of meetings in Brussels on how to solve the eurozone debt crisis. There are indications they might make progress on the issue of ensuring that shaky banks raise more capital from public funds if necessary. However, they are still struggling over how to improve the agency for bailing out governments which lacks the resources to help Italy or Spain, should they be needed.

St Paul's Cathedral, one of London's best-known landmarks, has been closed to the public for the first time since the Second World War because of an anti-capitalist protest taking place outside. The dean of St Paul's, the Reverend Graeme Knowles, said the decision had been made on health and safety grounds. He asked the demonstrators to move on.

"The decision to close St Paul's Cathedral is unprecedented in modern times, and I have asked the registrar to implement emergency procedures whereby the building remains closed but fit for purpose until such as a time as we can open safely."

A doctor who said the Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez had less than two years to live has fled the country, saying he feared for his life. In a letter published in a local paper, the doctor said events had forced him to leave the country abruptly after his practice was visited by intelligence officers. The doctor said last week that Mr Chavez had a very aggressive form of cancer. On Thursday, President Chavez returned from a medical checkup in Cuba, saying he was cured.
