LIBYA NEWS - Slain dictator Muammar Gaddafi's fugitive son Saif al-Islam has been reported of seeking surrender to International Criminal Court. Abdel Majid Mlegta, spokesman of National Transitional Council, said the 39-year old has indicated of surrendering to the ICC.

Saif went on the run a week ago when his father met a grisly death at the hands of vengeful Libyan fighters. He has fled to southern desert areas of Libya.

Gaddafi's ex-intelligence chief Abdulla al-Senussi has also been learned of surrendering to the ICC with Saif.

Mr Mlegta said, "They are proposing a way to hand themselves over to The Hague."

A source said Saif wants a third country involvement in a deal to get him to The Hague. Possible he wants Tunisia or Algeria for the deal. Saif wants an aircraft and assurances from the third country.

According to Niger presidential adviser, eight days ago Senoussi had slipped to its nation and was hiding at the Niger-Algeria border in the expanse of dunes.

Saif and Senussi are facing crime against humanity charges for their response to uprising in Libya. International Criminal Court issued arrest warrants against the two and Gaddafi in May this year.

NTC source said this son of Gaddafi out of eight children is concerned about his safety.

Saif al-Islam is a London-educated English-speaking man who was seen by analysts as Gaddafi's heir.
