New footage released by GlobalPost shows Muammar Gaddafi's capture by Libyan fighters from a new angle. In the video above, Gaddafi falls to his knees as he is held by a group of fighters. Although he is covered in blood, he appears to be alive.

According to GlobalPost, men in the background shout, "Don't kill him! Don't kill him! We need him alive!"

The Associated Press reports that Gaddafi also said, "What do you want? Don't kill me, my sons," as he was captured by fighters.

The Libyan dictator was captured and killed on October 20, 2011, after 42 years in power. He became the first ruler killed in the Arab Spring.
