    Four International Criminal Court staff have been arrested in Libya during a visit to arrange the defence for slain dictator Moamer Kadhafi’s detained son Seif al-Islam, the tribunal said Saturday.

    A commander with the Zintan brigade, the former rebel fighters who captured Seif and are still holding him, said one of the lawyers with the group had been arrested after trying to pass “dangerous” documents to him.

    An ICC statement called for their release and urged Tripoli to ensure that they were safe. Their team had been detained since Thursday, it added.
