Qaddafi's second son captured

Former Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi's second son Seif al-Islam was captured Friday in Libya's Zeltin city, 160 km east of the Libyan capital, Egypt's Middle East News Agency (MENA) reported.

A field commander of the Libyan National Transitional Council (NTC) told Al-Arabiya satellite channel over phone that Seif al-Islam had been captured in the south of the city and was now receiving medical treatment, Xinhua quoted the report as saying Friday evening.

Photos and a video of his detention will be made public within hours, said commander Ali el-Shawesh.

Shawesh, however, refused to reveal the gravity of Seif al-Islam's injuries.

The report could not be immediately confirmed by officials of Libya's National Transitional Council.

Qaddafi, who ruled Libya for 42 years, died Thursday after his hometown Sirte fell to the National Transitional Council fighters.

Seif al-Islam has been on the run since NTC forces took full control of Qaddafi's hometown Sirte Thursday.
