One of Muammar Qaddafi’s sons, 29-year-old Seif al-Arab Muammar el-Qaddafi, was killed in a NATO airstrike yesterday along with three Qaddafi grandchildren. Qaddafi and his wife, who were at their son’s house in Tripoli at the time, survived. The house was reportedly destroyed. A Qaddafi spokesman called the attack a “war crime” and vowed revenge.
