Saif al-Islam Gaddafi captured in Libya

Dressed as a Tuareq, Gaddafi was captured near Ubari in Libya's southern desert.



    Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, captured after three months on the run, was disguised as a Tuareq hiding within the Tuareg near Ubari. 

    He was reportedly scared and down to his last few thousand dollars in cash when he was detained in Libya’s southern desert. 

    It has  emerged that revolutionary forces from the town of Zintan had been pursuing his trail for some days, and finally caught up with his convoy at around 4am local time on Saturday.

    Saif al-Islam was then taken by air back to Zintan, pending transfer to Tripoli.
