Libya's interim government on 19 November promised a fair trial and good treatment for Saif al-Islam, the son of slain leader Muammar Gaddafi, following his arrest in the south of the country. 'I want to assure Libya and everyone that Saif al-Islam Gaddafi and those arrested with him will all be put on fair trial,' Prime Minister Abdel-Rahim al-Keeb told a press conference in the northwestern town of Zintan. Al-Islam is the subject of an arrest warrant issued by the International Criminal Court (ICC) in June for crimes against humanity in the crackdown against protesters. Al-Keib and the head of military council of Zintan said Saif al-Islam would be treated 'according to Islam's teachings on fair treatment of prisoners of war'.  EPA/SABRI ELMHEDWI /LANDOV


    The International Criminal Court wants to try Muammar Gaddafi's son Saif al-Islam, but the rebels from the town of Zintan who captured him want him tried inside the country. The information minister of the Libyan transitional government agrees, saying the onetime heir apparent will not be handed over to The Hague. The National Transitional Council will discuss its decision with the ICC's chief prosecutor when he visits Libya on Monday. Meanwhile, Gaddafi's spy chief Abdullah al-Sanussi was captured. He's also wanted by the ICC.
