Two of Gaddafi’s sons captured as rebels fight for Tripoli | Politisite

Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi’s son Seif al-Islam has been captured, rebel leader Mustafa Abdel Jalil said as rebel fighters attacked the capital.

There are reports Gaddafi’s presidential guards have surrendered.

The chairman of the rebel National Transitional Council told Al-Jazeera television from Benghazi in eastern Libya he had “information that Seif al-Islam has been captured”.

“He is being kept in a secure place under close guard until he is handed over to the judiciary,” Abdel Jalil said, without giving a date or place for the reported capture of Gaddafi’s son.

Before the revolt which erupted in February, Gaddafi’s son Seif al-Islam was increasingly seen as the successor to his father, despite publicly ruling out any dynastic ambitions in the North African country.
