Gaddafi's son Saif al-Islam to be tried in Libya

The International Criminal Court's chief prosecutor has accepted that Muammar Gaddafi's son Saif al-Islam will be tried in Libya, not The Hague.

Luis Moreno-Ocampo said the ICC had issued an arrest warrant for Saif al-Islam on war crimes charges because Libya's justice system was not up to it.

He said this was no longer the case, but that the ICC would help.

The BBC's Caroline Hawley reports from the western town of Zintan.
