Gaddafi's son Saif al-Islam 'arrested by rebels'

The prosecutor of the International Criminal Court has said Saif al-Islam Gaddafi - a son of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi - has been detained by rebel forces.

Saif Gaddafi was indicted along with his father earlier this year on charges of ordering, planning and participating in illegal attacks on civilians.

Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo confirmed that Saif Gaddafi had been detained by "rebel special forces."

He declined to give the source of the information.
