Armed forces of the Libyan National Transitional Council (NTC) arrested Libya’s former intelligence chief Abdullah al-Senussi, wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC), media reported on Sunday.
“The battalion of Je'fel Fazzan captured Abdullah al-Senussi in his sister's home . . . close to [the city of] Sabha,” Free Libya TV reported.
A member of the NTC also confirmed the arrest. News of his capture came a day after the son of the late Libyan strongman Muammar Gaddafi, Saif al-Islam, was arrested.
On September 9, Interpol put the ousted Libyan leader and Seif al-Islam, as well as his intelligence chief Abdullah al-Senussi, on a wanted list. The ICC issued warrant against al-Senussi on charges of crimes against humanity.
