Libya: We'll Try Sa'if al-Islam

Libyan officials said that it planned to try Sa'if al-Islam, son of Muammar Qaddafi, by itself. Despite the fact that there is an international arrest warrant out for al-Islam, Libya said that it would not turn him over to the International Criminal Court, but would try him at home.

Officials said that the detainee, captured over the weekend, would be given a “fair trial.”
