Mustafa Abdel-Jalil, head of the National Transitional Council, told the Associated Press on Monday that rebels detained al-Saadi Gadhafi on Sunday night along with his brother Seif al-Islam.

Gadhafi's sons and a daughter have all played roles in their father's regime, some in diplomatic or business roles. Al-Saadi and his brothers Mutassim and Khamis all headed military brigades.

The International Criminal Court has confirmed the capture of Seif al-Islam, who along with his father faces charges of crimes against humanity. Another son, Mohammed, was under house arrest.
