Gaddafi’s son Saif al-Islam has been captured by Libyan fighters.
He was taken by them near the southern town of Obari and was flown to the city of Zintan. Saif al-Islam, 39, said that he is doing well.
He is the final key member of the Gaddafi family to be captured or killed. Libya’s new prime minister says that Said al-Islam will be given a fair trial.
He is wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for crimes against humanity. Fighters captured him along with several aides as they tried to smuggle him out to Niger. Saif al-Islam was taken without a shot being fired.
His capture leaves only one Libyan ICC suspect at large, Gaddafi’s former intelligence chief, Abdallah Senoussi.
Saif al-Islam has been on the run for six months. Celebrations happened on the streets of Tripoli after the news of his arrest was revealed.
His father was killed on Oct. 20 after being captured during the final battle for his hometown, Sirte.
