MISRATA, Libya - The burial of slain Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has been delayed for a few days until arrangements for the location are finalized, the oil minister of Libya's interim government said on Friday.

"I told them to keep it in the freezer for a few days... to make sure that everybody knows he is dead," Ali Tarhouni told Reuters. He said the body was in Misrata, which was a stronghold of the rebels who toppled Gaddafi throughout Libya's civil war.

Asked about the burial arrangements, including where he would be buried, he said: "There is no decision yet."
