he bodies of Muammar Gaddafi, his son Muatassim and a former aide have been moved from a commercial freezer in a warehouse area of Misrata and buried in a secret location.
Longtime Libyan dictator Gaddafi, his son and a top aide were buried in an Islamic ceremony at dawn on Tuesday in a secret location, with a few relatives and officials in attendance, officials said.

The burial closed the book on Gaddafi's nearly 42-year rule and the 8-month civil war to oust him, but did not silence international calls for an investigation into whether the widely despised tyrant was executed by his captors.
Local military spokesman Ibrahim Beitalmal said the three men would be interred in unmarked graves in a secret location to avoid vandalism.
Asked about the removal of the bodies from the freezer, he said he was unaware of the process of burial getting under way.
However, Mr Salem al-Mohandes, a security guard at the warehouse complex, said the bodies were moved late on Monday from the freezer, where they had been on display for the past four days.
"Our job is finished," said Mr al-Mohandes.
"He (Gaddafi) was transferred and the military council of Misrata took him away to an unknown location. I don't know whether they buried him or not."
An Associated Press Television News team saw three vehicles leave the warehouse area late on Monday.
The team then entered the freezer and found it empty.
