Libyan leader Colonel Moammar Gadhafi has reportedly been wounded and captured in a battle over Gadhafi’s hometown of Sirte, the last city where his loyalists had remained holed up, RadarOnline.com is reporting.

Gaddafi  — who faces international charges of crimes against humanity — was  shot in both legs, according to reports.

The news comes as Libyan fighters drove the last Gadhafi holdouts out of Sirte after fierce gunbattles Thursday in the midst of an eight-month civil war.

The former rebels celebrated capturing Sirte by firing shots into the sky, waving the resolution’s flag, and singing Libya’s national anthem.

“Our forces control the last neighborhood in Sirte,” Hassan Draoua, a member of Libya’s interim National Transitional Council, told The Associated Press in Tripoli. “The city has been liberated.”

Gadhafi — who ruled Libya for 42 years — was ousted in August, when rebel forces captured the Libyan capital of Tripoli.
