Gaddafi faces world court inquiry

International Criminal Court to investigate alleged crimes against humanity committed in Libya.

    The chief prosecutor for the International Criminal Court has said that Muammar Gaddafi, the Libyan leader, and his key aides, will be investigated for possible crimes against humanity.

    Luis Moreno-Ocampo said on Thursday that he would be holding Gaddafi's government to account over reports of atrocities committed against peaceful protesters.

    Hundreds have been killed in the uprising against Gaddafi's 40-year rule and thousands injured.
