As noted at international news sites that day, Saif al-Islam Gadhafi was arrested by revolutionary fighters during a firefight in southern Libya, a month after his father was captured and killed.

“We have arrested Saif al-Islam Gadhafi in [the] Ubari area,” Libya interim Justice Minister Mohammed al-Alagy was quoted telling to Al Jazeera, noting that Gadhafi’s son was not seriously injured.

According to reports, Libyan TV have released a photo of someone that is being believed to be Saif al-Islam Gadhafi, who is sitting by a bed and holding his three bandaged fingers.

The said photo was said to be taken after he was arrested, with Al Qa’aq commander Othman Mliegta telling CNN that the younger Gadhafi was brought to Zintan city later.

Saif al-Islam Gaddafi is being believed to have played a major role in the injustice during the Libya uprising that began last February, and is declared ‘wanted’ by the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Meanwhile, a celebration is now being made in Tripoli, Libya‘s capital after the people learned about the news, in which honking of horns and cries of joy were heard along the streets.
