Video: Units of al-Qaeda take control of Gaddafi’s home town of Sirte

A video footage dated March 23, 2012 has been published online. It shows a convoy of vehicles with the Mujahideen of al-Qaeda entering the Libyan city of Sirte, reports UmmaNews.

The convoy consists of several dozen vehicles, almost each of them mounted with heavy machine guns and black flags of al-Qaeda.

Cries of Allahu Akbar (God is Great) are heard, the whole street was filled with sirens roar and road signals.

The motorcade is closed by the three fire engines – the flags of al-Qaeda can also be seen on their windshields.

It is to be recalled that Sirte is the home town of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi and was one of his last strongholds after the rebels capture the capital Tripoli in August 2011. It was in Sirte on October 20 Gaddafi was killed.
