“The short will was said to be one of three copies given to relatives, one of whom was killed, one arrested and one managed to escape the fighting in Sirte, where the dictator was killed.
Published on Gaddafi's website, Seven Day News, the former Libyan dictator said: "I call on my supporters to continue the resistance, and fight any foreign aggressor against Libya, today, tomorrow and always."
He apparently made it clear he had decided to die in Libya rather than flee, telling his supporters: "Let the free people of the world know that we could have bargained over and sold out our cause in return for a personal secure and stable life.
"We received many offers to this effect but we chose to be at the vanguard of the confrontation as a badge of duty and honour."
Gaddafi asked to be buried, clothed as he died, with his body unwashed, in a graveyard in his home town of Sirte, not far from where he was killed as he fled the city on Thursday.”
