As noted by Al Jazeera, which interviewed Gaddafi’s son, Mohammed Gaddafi, he confirmed that he surrendered and is now under house arrest, as Libya unrest being noted to end soon.

“I’m being attacked right now, this is gunfire inside my house, they’re inside my house.” Mohammed Gaddafi said during the Al Jazeera live interview on Sunday; and the conversation was later cut.

Saif al-Islam, Gaddafi’s other son, was also confirmed to have been arrested, as told by National Transitional Council (NTC) head Mustafa Abdul Jalil to Al Jazeera on the same day.

“Neither Mohamed Muammar Gaddafi nor any one of his family was harmed. He will remain in his house, and I guarantee his safety.” Mustafa Abdel Jalil told Al Jazeera.

The International Criminal Court (ICC), which issued an arrest warrant for Saif al-Islam last June, confirmed the news hours later as Libya rebels have now moved forward to Tripoli, Libya’s capital.

Meanwhile, three other Gaddafi sons; Hannibal, Mutasim and Khamis, along with Abdullah al-Senussi, Gaddafi‘s longtime intelligence chief and his brother-in-law; and other senior Libyan officials are still at large.

World leaders including US President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron have been very vocal in calling Moammar Gaddafi to resign from his post, whose whereabouts is currently unknown.
