ICC delays inquiry into Gaddafi's son


The International Criminal Court yesterday granted Libyan authorities more time to answer questions about Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, who is wanted by the court but being held in Libya.

Libya's new rulers asked for three more weeks to respond to questions asked by ICC judges about Muammar Gaddafi's son. The international court charged him in June with crimes against humanity, including multiple murders during the former regime's brutal crackdown on dissent. Saif Gaddafi was arrested in November in Libya's southern desert.
