Baku-APA, Seif al-Islam Gaddafi, a key son of Libya’s toppled dictator Muammar Gaddafi, has been arrested by the rebel forces, according to reports, APA reports quoting Aljazeera.

Gaddafi’s son was caught Thursday night after his convoy was encircled and attacked by rebel detachments.

Shortly after Sirte was overwhelmed by the rebel forces, and Muammar Gaddafi was captured and died of his wounds earlier on Thursday, Seif al-Islam was believed to still be at large in the southern Libya desert, a Transitional National Council member has told al-Jazeera.

Reports cited by the BBC Thursday night, however, say that Seif al-Islam Gaddafi, said to be fleeing Sirte in a convoy, has been encircled and is under attack.
