Libya trial date set for Gaddafi son

Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, the son of the Libyan former leader, will go on trial in Libya in September, a Libyan prosecution spokesman has said.

Gaddafi has said he wants to be tried in the International Criminal Court in The Hague and his supporters say they fear he could face the death penalty if tried in Libya.

The International Criminal Court's Sonia Robia told the BBC that ICC judges had requested additional information from the Libyan authorities regarding the proceedings, including the conditions of his detention and whether he had been assigned a lawyer.
