Gaddafi spy chief Senussi captured -Libya govt

TRIPOLI, (Reuters) – A spokesman for Libya’s  interim administration, the National Transitional Council (NTC),  said local officials in the desert town of Sabha had confirmed  the capture today of Muammar Gaddafi’s intelligence chief  Abdullah al-Senussi.
A day after Gaddafi’s son Saif al-Islam was captured in the  same general region, Abdul Hafiz Ghoga told a news conference  that Senussi, the elder Gaddafi’s brother-in-law and loyal  confidant, had been seized. Earlier, an NTC military official  said Senussi had been surrounded at a house owned by his sister.
Following the killing of Muammar Gaddafi a month ago, his  son and Senussi had been the surviving Libyans on the wanted  list of the International Criminal Court. Ghoga said the NTC had  agreed to resist requests from the ICC to hand them over and  would argue that it could run fair trials in Libya.
