(Newser) – It's going to get harder and harder to avoid gruesome images of Moammar Gadhafi. NPR reports that his unclothed body went on display at a private house in Misrata today, with Libyans crowding in to take photos. (Getty has images here via Huffington Post, but note they are most definitely not for the squeamish.) The body of his son, Mutassim, got similar treatment in Misrata, notes Reuters. "This is the end of the tyrant," said one visitor.
