The youngest of former Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi's seven sons was declared dead after being captured Saturday, Al Arabiya reported.

Citing Mohammed Maqrif, head of the Libyan National Congress, Al Arabiya reported that Khamis Gaddafi, military commander of the Khamis Brigade of the Libyan Army, was severely wounded during clashes in Bani Walid and died after being captured.

The news follows the issuance of a statement by the Libyan prime minister's office on Saturday announcing the capture of Moammar Gaddafi's former government spokesman, Moussa Ibrahim.

Both the death of Khamis Gaddafi and the capture of Ibrahim came exactly one year after the death of the former Libyan dictator in his hometown Sirte, after he was caught hiding in a drain pipe.
