Seif al-Islam Gadhafi captured in southern Libya


ZINTAN, Libya (AP) — Moammar Gadhafi's former heir apparent Seif al-Islam was captured by revolutionary fighters in the southern desert Saturday just over a month after his father was killed, setting off joyous celebrations and closing the door on the possibility that the fugitive son could stoke further insurrection.

Seif al-Islam, once seen as a voice of reform in an eccentric and reviled regime, now faces the prospect of trial before an international or Libyan court to answer for the alleged crimes of his late father's four-decade rule.
