The cartoon shows a burnt-out convoy while smoke rises from buildings in the distance. A signpost reads 'Libya' but the 'lib' from the beginning of the word has been replaced by 'Got' so that the signpost reads 'Gotya'. Context: Colonel Gaddafi had been hiding in the city of Sirte while his supporters made a last-ditch stand against the rebels. He was captured alive in Sirte by members of the Libyan National Liberation Army after his convoy was attacked by NATO warplanes as Sirte fell on 20 October 2011. Gaddafi was then killed in controversial circumstances by NLA fighters. (Wikipedia)
