MISRATA, Libya - Libyan government officials said on Monday the body of Muammar Gaddafi would no longer be kept on public view and guards shut the gates at the cold storage container where it had been displayed since the fallen leader was killed four days ago.

"From 3 p.m. (13.00 GMT), the public will no longer be able to view the body," a National Transitional Council official said. Guards at the container locked the gates to the surrounding compound at around 3:30 p.m. (13.30 GMT), barring access.

The bodies of one of Gaddafi's sons and of his former army chief were also on show in the cold store.
