Gaddafi son Saif may be tried in Libya: rebel envoy

PARIS (Reuters) - Libya's rebel envoy to Paris said on Monday there was a chance Muammar Gaddafi's son Saif al-Islam Gaddafi could be tried in Libya and not handed over to the International Criminal Court in the Hague.

"Everything is possible, it is up to the NTC (National Transitional Council) to decide. It is possible that he will be handed over to the ICC but it's also possible he won't," Mansour Saif al-Nasr told Reuters Television outside the Libyan embassy in Paris.

He said he was unsure of the whereabouts of Muammar Gaddafi, but added that he would be arrested and brought to justice.
