ABOUT THE ART

With his hated regime crumbling around him, spineless Colonel Muammar Gaddafi finally sneaked off - but not before one last order: 'Send in the bombers'. As thousands demonstrated in Tripoli, there were claims he had boarded a private jet and fled to Venezuela. But before he vanished, the vengeful dictator made one last terrifying bid to cling on to his 41-year rule and punish these infidel protesters who had toppled him. He ordered his air force to bomb unarmed civilians with warplanes and gunships. After losing control of huge swathes of the country, Gaddafi also unleashed an army of foreign mercenaries - paid up to £20,000 a head - to gun down protesters. He came out of hiding to make a bizarre statement, broadcast on state TV. Clutching a large brolly, he clambered out of a battered truck and said: 'i am in Tripoli and not Venezuela. So don't believe these dogs and these television channels.' Human rights groups said hundreds of people have died since violence first erupted in Libya. With journalists expelled from the country it was left to horrified locals to describe the appalling attacks. 'What we are witnessing today is unimaginable.' So good job that he's dead now!
