U.S. Predator Drone Fired on Gaddafi’s Convoy, Official Says

(MY FOX HOUSTON)   A U.S. Predator drone, along with a French fighter jet, fired on the convoy said to be carrying Muammar Qaddafi in the moments before his death, a U.S. defense official told Fox News on Thursday.

The official said the drone and French jet fired on a “large convoy” leaving Qaddafi’s hometown of Sirte. A French defense official earlier said about 80 vehicles were in the convoy — the official said the strike did not destroy the convoy but that fighters on the ground afterward intercepted the vehicle carrying Qaddafi.

President Obama said Thursday that the death of Qaddafi ends a “long and painful chapter” for the Libyan people.

The president, speaking in the Rose Garden, announced that Libyans have “won their revolution.”

“Today we can definitively say that the Qaddafi regime has come to an end,” he said.

Qaddafi died of wounds suffered during his capture near Sirte, according to a spokesman for the National Transitional Council in Libya.
