WASHINGTON - US intelligence officials believe Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, who has not been seen in public since a NATO missile attack reportedly killed his son, is still alive, CIA Director Leon Panetta told NBC television on Tuesday.

"[The] best intelligence we have is that he's still alive," Panetta said in an interview with NBC News.

Gaddafi, who seized power in a 1969 coup, has not been seen in public since a NATO missile attack on Saturday struck a house in his compound in Tripoli. Libyan officials said Gaddafi survived, but his youngest son and three grandchildren were killed.
