A spokesman for the fighters holding Muammar Gaddafi's body says the slain dictator will probably be buried on Tuesday in an unmarked grave in a secret location.

Ibrahim Beit al-Mal, a spokesman for the Misrata military council, told The Associated Press on Monday that he's "90% sure the bodies will be buried tomorrow." The report could not immediately be confirmed.

The bodies of Gaddafi, one of his sons and a former government minister were on public display for a fourth day in a commercial freezer in the port city, where Misrata residents have been lining up to see them.

Libya's leader Mustafa Abdul-Jalil said the decisions on what to do with Gaddafi's body will be governed by a fatwa, or religious edict.
