NTC at odds with ICC over Gaddafi's son

New leaders want Saif al-Islam to be tried for war crimes in Libya, rather than in The Hague.

    Libya's National Transitional Council (NTC) has expressed concern that the International Criminal Court (ICC) has held informal talks with Saif al-Islam, the fugitive son of former leader Muammar Gaddafi.

    The ICC is reportedly working on a deal for Saif to surrender and be tried for war crimes in The Hague, in the Netherlands.

    The NTC would prefer to capture Saif and put him on trial in Tripoli.
