GENEVA - Dead bodies are being found regularly in mass graves, hospitals and other sites in Libya, including on roadsides, the International Committee of the Red Cross said on Thursday.

The humanitarian agency said many bodies had not been claimed, but that thousands of families were waiting to find out what had happened to missing loved ones. It gave no estimate of the number of unclaimed bodies.

Ousted leader Muammar Gaddafi was killed on Thursday as Libya's new leaders overran Sirte, the last bastion of his long rule, sparking wild celebrations that eight months of war may finally be over.

"In various parts of Libya, human remains are being discovered regularly in mass graves, hospitals and other sites," the ICRC said in a statement on its aid operations.
