AP, AFP Offer Dead Gadhafi Photo

The AP and AFP services are circulating photos of Moammar Gadhafi's body after the long-time Libyan leader was killed this morning in fighting near his stronghold of Sirti. The AP images come from video screengrabs provided by Al Jazeera and Al Arabiya, says Paul Colford, director of media relations. AP has been “very careful to use only stuff we’ve vetted and feel comfortable about,” Colford said. You can read more about it here (& find another link that provides a graphic photo of Gadhafi's body.

Question: Should newspapers, wire services, Huckleberries publish graphic photos of Gadhafi's body? And/or: How will you handle graphic images/video of Gadhafi's death?
