    Muammar Gaddafi's son Saif al-Islam has been captured in a southern
    Libyan city along with two of his aides who were trying to smuggle him out of the country, according to a militia commander.

    Bashir al-Tlayeb of the Zintan brigades said that Saif al-Islam was caught in the desert town of Obari, near the southern city of Sabha about 650 kilometres south of Tripoli.

    He didn't elaborate on how Saif al-Islam was captured, but said that he was brought to the city of Zintan, the home of one of the largest revolutionary brigades in Libya.

    Al-Tlayeb said that it would be up to the Libya's ruling National Transitional Council to decide on where the former Libyan leader would be tried.
