Sunday 18 March 2012
Mauritania officials have arrested the former Libyan intelligence chief Abdullah al-Senoussi, a leading figure in the regime of Muammar Gaddafi.
He is wanted by the International Criminal Court, which has indicted him with Gaddafi's son Saif al-Islam on charges of crimes against humanity while attempting to crush last year's rebellion. Mr al-Senoussi was seized in the capital, Nouakchott, after flying in from the Moroccan city of Casablanca. It said he was carrying a fake Malian passport.
