Tombs of the parents of the dead Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi were desecrated and destroyed in his home town of Sirte.

The Algerian An-Nahar newspaper blames the act of vandalism on a jihadist movement which claims to have close links to al-Qaida.

Four tombs were said to have been dug up and destroyed, including those of Gaddafi’s parents, and two other relatives, and the bones were removed and burned.

The paper says the desecration happened shortly after Gaddafi`s murder.
