The Former Prime Minister and Minister of Oil of Libya, 69-year-old Shukri Ghanem, one of the closest associates of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi who was slain by rebels, was found dead on Sunday in the Austrian capital.
There are two conflicting versions regarding his death. According to one version by his next of kin, he died in his apartment. However, the police say the body of the once influential Libyan leader was found in the Danube River in a shipping lane in the city and that he left his apartment on Sunday morning.

The causes of death will be known after an autopsy. According to the family, it was most likely a heart attack.
