Ahmed al-Gaddatfi al-Qahsi (Arabic: أحمد القذافي‎; born 15 July 1970 - died 26 July 2011) was the cousin of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. In 2006, he married Gaddafi's daughter Ayesha.[1] According to the Gaddafi family, Qahsi, who was a Colonel in the Libyan Army, was killed in the 26 July 2011[2] bombing of the Gaddafi compound during the Libyan Civil War.[3][4] The couple had three children before the conflict started.[5] His fourth child, a girl, was born in Algeria as Ayesha fled there with her brothers Hannibal and Muhammad after the Battle of Tripoli.[6]
