WASHINGTON - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Sunday the United States supports a possible UN investigation into the death of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.

"I would strongly support both a UN investigation that has been called for and the investigation that the Transitional National Council said they will conduct," Clinton told the NBC program "Meet the Press," referring to Libya's interim rulers.

"You know, I think it's important that this new government, this effort to have a democratic Libya, start with the rule of law, start with accountability," she said.

UN Human Rights Commissioner Navi Pillay has called for an investigation into the killing. There is growing international disquiet about the chaotic scenes surrounding Gaddafi's apparent summary execution following the fall of his hometown of Sirte Thursday.
