Clinton said a the new government of should start strong with the rule of law and accountability. She said the process of unity and reconciliation in Libya can also begin if an investigation will be conducted to determine if Gaddafi die in a crossfire of had been killed by the rebels. The US official also took time to call on Libya’s Transitional National Council to also investigate Gaddafi’s death to show that they are firm on its quest of democracy by punishing its members who might have killed Gaddafi after his arrest.

Later in the same video the wounded Gaddafi is already seen dead. The UN said if ever it is proven that Gaddafi had been intentionally killed it is considered a war crime that constitute severe punishment to those who will violate it.
